It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access that 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 access any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different websites never get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is very easy. If any protected site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it promptly as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.
