It's not unusual for many 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 period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single cloud website hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed within a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate is quite easy. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to keep your sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you wish to use some script that needs accessibility to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long as we'll have several daily backups for it all the time, so we could quickly restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain since you may want to use a certain script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it easily through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the very same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. If any one of your websites is hacked, we'll be able to promptly restore it using the several daily backup copies which we'll keep and in the mean time the attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other websites will be blocked.
