It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and following that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

We have included JailHost for all cloud website hosting plans, so you could protect any of your sites with only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is really quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we always have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, therefore we can bring it back to its original state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost included by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain because you may want to use a script that accesses different folders in the account, but you can activate it effortlessly via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites as it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your websites is hacked, we'll promptly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be stopped.
