It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect all of your sites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other websites is very quick. Unlike other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we'll have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to bring it back to its original state in a matter of minutes.
