It is not uncommon 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 aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and after that to take control of other sites which are 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 which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared web hosting packages, so you could protect your sites with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to avoid interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very quick. Unlike some other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be protected and we always have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, so we can recover it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
