It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for various Internet sites never get mixed up as it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but securing all of the other folders is very simple. If any protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it without delay since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
