It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other sites that are hosted in the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites 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. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host your sites in a shared website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all plans and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different websites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it without delay since we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups in Hepsia.
