It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins 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 following that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a web hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different sites don't get mixed up as it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all other folders is very simple. If a secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it in a short time as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.
