It isn't uncommon for a lot of 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 period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites 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. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites within a shared hosting account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be activated for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different sites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all the other folders is really easy. If any secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it quickly because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
