It isn't unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits 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 won't be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your sites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different Internet sites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it easily because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.
