It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting plans, so you will be able to protect your Internet sites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is very effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we always have multiple daily backups for the infected one, so that we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
