It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost will not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting packages, so you can protect your websites with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default to avoid interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is really effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be safe and we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, so that we will be able to recover it to its initial state in just a few minutes.
