It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you should 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 Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all web hosting solutions, so you'll be able to protect your sites with only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very easy. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the affected one, therefore we can restore it to its initial state within a few minutes.
