It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the website and from that point on to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up within just a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate is easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to keep your Internet sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use some script that needs accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long because we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so that we can easily recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host several different websites, you'll be able to isolate them from one another and keep them safe. The option must be activated for each site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much easier to manage and protect all of your websites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website in no time because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
