It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could enable 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, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You will be able to choose which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you could recover it quick and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
