It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you need to 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 Website Hosting

We have included JailHost for all shared website hosting solutions, so you'll be able to protect your sites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default to avoid disturbing any websites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we'll have several daily backup copies for the affected one, therefore we can bring it back to its original state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost included by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use a script that accesses multiple folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it with ease through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites since it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from one another. In case that any of your websites is hacked, we will be able to promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other websites will be stopped.
