It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the hosting packages that we provide and you could turn it on with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can pick which websites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content since you may have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, this option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
