It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account from our firm, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all plans and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for different websites don't get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but securing all of the other folders is really easy. If a protected website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it quickly as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
