Learn how you can take advantage of the "JailHost" option in your control panel and how it could protect all of your sites.
It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate is much easier. Allowing JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to maintain your Internet sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use some script that requires accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long because we will have a couple of daily backups for it all of the time, so we could promptly restore it.
