It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since 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 cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for many different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to restore it in a short time because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
