It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites inside a shared website hosting account from our firm, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all packages and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various Internet sites never get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all of the other folders is really easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to recover it promptly because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.
