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 that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other websites that are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only 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 see any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different Internet sites never get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all the other folders is really easy. If any secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it easily because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.
