It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

We have included JailHost for all web hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect each of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we'll have multiple daily backups for the infected one, so that we'll be able to recover it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

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