It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that 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 from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet 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. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you must always 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 Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed inside a single main folder, so keeping the sites separate is incredibly easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any special skills in order to maintain your Internet sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use a script that requires access to a different folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we'll have several daily backups for it all the time, so we could promptly restore it.
