Learn just what ‘JailHost’ means. Uncover the primary advantages of activating this option for your hosted domain names.
In case you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single website hosting
plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed within a single main folder, so keeping the sites separate will be a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you won't need any special skills to keep your sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use some script that needs access to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long as we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we could easily recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you might use an app that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you'll be able to protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from one another. This is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future intrusions.
