It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and following that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just 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 in your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Website Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all packages and can be activated for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for different websites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but shielding all other folders is very simple. In case any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to recover it without delay because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
