It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which 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 view any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you must 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 Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you can protect all of your websites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is very effortless. Unlike some other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we will have several daily backup copies for the infected one, so we can bring it back to its original state in just a few minutes.
