It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the website and from that point on to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just 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 see any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed within a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate is a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to keep your websites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use some script that needs accessibility to a different folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for too long since we'll have several daily backups for it all the time, so we can quickly restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name as you may want to use a certain script that accesses different folders in the account, but you can activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites as it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any of your websites gets hacked, we'll quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be stopped.
