It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the content is not mixed inside a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate is quite easy. Allowing JailHost for any Internet site takes just a few clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you will not need any special skills in order to maintain your websites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use a script that needs access to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for too long because we'll have a couple of daily backups for it at all times, so we could quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name as you may wish to use a certain script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it easily through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from one another. In case that any one of your Internet sites is hacked, we can almost instantly restore it because of the several daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be stopped.
