It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much 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 cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your sites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be activated for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various Internet sites never get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all other folders is very simple. In case any protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it quickly since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.
