Discover how you can take advantage of the "JailHost" option inside your control panel and how it could protect all your websites.
It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content part of your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the website hosting packages that we offer and you can enable it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a big difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content as you could have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add one more level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could restore it quick and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
