It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single cloud hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up in just a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate will be much simpler. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you won't need any special skills to maintain your sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script which needs accessibility to another folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long as we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we can easily recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default since you may use an app that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you can easily secure all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
