It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't 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 Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other sites that are hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely 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 access any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every website hosting plan that we provide 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 can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up within a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate will be a lot easier. Allowing JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you will not need any special skills to maintain your sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use some script that needs accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for too long as we'll have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we could promptly recover it.
