It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords since they're 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 instances, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you need to 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 Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain because you may want to use a specific script which accesses different folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it effortlessly through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple websites as it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from each other. If any one of your websites is hacked, we'll quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be stopped.
