It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits the access which 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 will not be able to see any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every website hosting plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed inside a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate will be rather easy. Activating JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to maintain your Internet sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use some script that needs access to an additional folder inside 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 damaged for too long because we will have several daily backups for it all the time, so that we can quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may want to use a specific script which accesses multiple folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your websites gets hacked, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other sites will be stopped.
