It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just 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 inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up in just a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate is much easier. Activating JailHost for any site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to keep your Internet sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use some script which needs accessibility to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long as we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it at all times, so that we can promptly restore it.
