It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are less difficult 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 will not be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other websites that are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an excellent 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 view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost can't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you can protect all of your sites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default to avoid disturbing any sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we will have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we will be able to bring it back to its original state in a matter of minutes.
