It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely 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 access any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for various websites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all the other folders is really easy. If a protected website gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it without delay as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use a certain script which accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it effortlessly via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites as it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from each other. In case that any one of your sites gets hacked, we can promptly restore it using the several daily backup copies that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be cut off.
