It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost does not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for many different websites never get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is really easy. In case any secured Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to recover it easily because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
