It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host your sites inside a shared website hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all plans and can be enabled for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for many different websites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is very easy. If any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it very quickly because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
