Know what precisely ‘JailHost’ refers to. Find out the benefits of enabling this option for your hosted domain names.
If you host multiple sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your websites, as gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a top-notch security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting
account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for various Internet sites never get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but shielding all the other folders is simple and easy. In case any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it easily as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and you could activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even if you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was right away as we will keep a couple of daily backup copies of the entire account.
