It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that 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 access any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate will be easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to keep your websites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use some script that requires access to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long because we will have several daily backups for it all of the time, so that we could easily restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default for the reason that you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. This is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
