It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're 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 difficult for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should 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 Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single web hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate is incredibly easier. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to maintain your sites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use a script which requires access to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long since we'll have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost included by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use a specific script which accesses multiple folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it without any difficulty through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple websites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several websites in the very same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your websites is hacked, we can almost instantly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be blocked.
