It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and after that to take control of other sites which are hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

If you host your sites inside a website hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for many different sites don't get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all the other folders is very simple. If any secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it easily because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.
