It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites inside a shared hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different Internet sites never get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all other folders is simple and easy. In case any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it very quickly as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
