What are the actual advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple websites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your sites, because getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting
packages, so you'll be able to protect your sites with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to prevent disturbing any sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we always have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to recover it to its original state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so in case you host several Internet sites, you can easily separate them from one another and keep them safe. The option must be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and shield your Internet sites. In case that a website within your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged site very quickly as we will have multiple backups of your content.
