It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every web hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate will be a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to maintain your sites safe. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use a script which requires access to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long since we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all of the time, so we can easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so when a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was right away as we will have a couple of daily backups of your entire account.
