It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other websites that are hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively 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 see any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your websites in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different websites don't get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all of the other folders is really easy. In case any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it without delay because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
