It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost won't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll 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'll be able to protect each of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default to avoid interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, so we'll be able to restore it to its original state in just a few minutes.
