It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you must 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 Shared Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up in just a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate is much easier. Enabling JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you won't need any special skills to keep your sites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use a script which needs access to a different folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we'll have a couple of daily backups for it all of the time, so we can easily restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may want to use a script which accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it with ease through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your websites is hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it thanks to the several daily backups which we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
