It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only 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 inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a web hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all plans and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various sites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all other folders is very easy. If a protected site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it in a short time as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups from Hepsia.
