It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted within the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed within just a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate is much easier. Allowing JailHost for any website takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to keep your websites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use a script that needs accessibility to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we will have a couple of daily backups for it all the time, so that we can quickly restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host a couple of Internet sites, you'll be able to separate them from each other to keep them safe. This feature must be activated for each and every site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it simpler to take care of and protect all of your websites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected site very quickly as we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
