It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you will be able to protect all of your websites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is really quick. Unlike some other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we always have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, which means that we will be able to recover it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
