It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single website hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed in just a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate is a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any site takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to keep your sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use some script which requires access to a different folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long since we'll have several daily backups for it all of the time, so that we can quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain because you may need to use a certain script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it with ease via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple websites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from one another. In case that any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll quickly restore it thanks to the several daily backups that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be stopped.
