What are the pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using obsolete apps or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords always poses a threat to your websites as these things make it considerably easier hack them. Things can get worse in case you have a lot of websites since all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker gets control of only one of them. Because of this we've developed JailHost - an advanced level security option that isolates sites from each other. In case a website gets compromised, the attacker will be unable to view or access any other content outside the website folder, so all other websites hosted within this account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option will not substitute doing frequent script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you will need to fix only one site and not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites in a shared web hosting
account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different sites do not get mixed up as it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is simple and easy. If a secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it easily since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
plans come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain name since you may need to use some script that accesses different folders in the account, but you can activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be isolated from one another. In case that any of your websites gets hacked, we'll promptly restore it because of the several daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
