It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins 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 over the website and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable 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 can activate it with only a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, the option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
