It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're 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 will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that 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 in your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the security measures you should 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 have included JailHost for all cloud hosting plans, so you could protect any of your websites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default to prevent disturbing any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot 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 websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we always have multiple daily backups for the infected one, therefore we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
