It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you could protect your websites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you might want visitors or administrators 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 very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be protected and we will have several daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we can bring it back to its original state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host multiple websites, you'll be able to separate them from one another in order to keep them safe. This option must be activated for each site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and protect your sites. In case that a website inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected website before you know it since we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
