It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other websites that may be hosted in the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed in just a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate will be much simpler. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to keep your sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script that requires accessibility to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long since we will have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so we can quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can easily protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future intrusions.
