How To: Enhance User Security with Dreamhost

If you are using DreamHost, we recommend a few options to increase the security of your sites in their environment:

    1. Enhanced User Security

It adds a few security restrictions per site/accounts to minimize the chances of attacks from other users in the same shared server.

    1. Configure a different user account per site

There is also an option to create/isolate each site on different user accounts. We highly recommend it to minimize cross site reinfections.
