It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and immediately after that to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost will not replace 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
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with just a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a big difference. You'll be able to choose which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content because you may have some site where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
