It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient 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 websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content in your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud website hosting solutions, so you could protect each of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is very quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we will have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we can bring it back to its original state within minutes.
