Know precisely what ‘JailHost’ signifies. Find the benefits associated with activating this option for your hosted domains.
If you host multiple sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a top-notch security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites updated, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your websites in a cloud website hosting
account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all plans and can be enabled for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for different sites never get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all other folders is very easy. In case a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it in a short time as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default as you may use an application which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you could protect all other sites by isolating them from one another. This is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future attacks.
