It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host multiple Internet sites, you can easily isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for every single Internet site and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much simpler to control and secure all your sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected Internet site in no time as we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
