It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from there on to take control of other websites which are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll 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 offer and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed in a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate will be much simpler. Enabling JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to maintain your websites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use a script which needs access to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long because we will have several daily backup copies for it all of the time, so we can promptly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain because you may wish to use a certain script which accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it with ease via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from each other. If any of your websites gets hacked, we will quickly restore it thanks to the several daily backup copies which we will keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be stopped.
