It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared website hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate is a lot easier. Allowing JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills to maintain your websites safe. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use a script which needs accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long since we will have a couple of daily backups for it all of the time, so that we can promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host several websites, you can isolate them from one another to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for each Internet site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much simpler to maintain and protect all of your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged site before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
