It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single cloud web hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed within a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate is a lot easier. Activating JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to keep your websites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use some script that needs access to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we will have a couple of daily backups for it at all times, so we could quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default simply because you might use an application that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you will be able to protect all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from future attacks.
