It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other sites which are hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely 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 access any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your sites inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be activated for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for many different Internet sites never get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is very easy. In case a secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it quickly since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
