What are the pros of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, as getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting
plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate is a lot easier. Activating JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to maintain your sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use some script that requires accessibility to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long since we will have several daily backup copies for it at all times, so that we could quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default because you might use an application which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, but you can easily secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This is really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
