What are the basic advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple Internet sites in the exact 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 may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised site can do lots of damage to all your sites, because getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared hosting
plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate will be far easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to keep your sites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use a script which requires access to a different 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'll have several daily backups for it all the time, so that we can promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions, so in case you host several different sites, you will be able to separate them from each other to keep them safe. This option must be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to take care of and protect all your Internet sites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site in a short time as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
