It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're 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 instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access that 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 access any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you can protect each of your websites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default in order to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is really simple. Unlike some other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we always have several daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we will be able to recover it to its original state within minutes.
