It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can enable it with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a big difference. You can select which sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some Internet site where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
