It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting plans, so you will be able to protect any of your Internet sites with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default so as to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is really simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be safe and we always have multiple daily backups for the affected one, so we will be able to bring it back to its original state in a couple of minutes.
