It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and after that to take control of other sites which are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared website hosting packages that we provide and you could enable it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost can make a significant difference. You can select which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some site where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add an extra level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you will be able to restore it really easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
