It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are 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 situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host multiple websites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This option must be activated for each website and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to maintain and protect all your websites. In case that a site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged Internet site very quickly since we will have multiple backups of your content.
