Know precisely what ‘JailHost’ signifies. Identify the benefits of activating this feature for your hosted domains.
If you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all of your sites, as getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all hosting
solutions, so you'll be able to protect your Internet sites with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default to avoid interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is really effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be safe and we'll have several daily backups for the affected one, so that we'll be able to recover it to its original state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server
solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain name as you may want to use a certain script that accesses different folders in the account, but you can activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be separated from each other. If any of your Internet sites is hacked, we will quickly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be blocked.
