It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting solutions, so you can protect any of your sites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to prevent disturbing any websites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other sites is very quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we always have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, therefore we'll be able to restore it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
