It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
In case you host your sites within a web hosting account from our firm, you can protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available 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 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 main site folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all the other folders is very easy. If any secured Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it in a short time since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.
