It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you can protect any of your websites with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default to avoid interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is very easy. Unlike alternative Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we'll have several daily backups for the affected one, which means that we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state in just a few minutes.
