What are the actual benefits of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and after that to take control of other sites that are hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single cloud hosting
plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up within a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate is a lot easier. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any special skills to maintain your websites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script that requires access to another folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for too long as we'll have several daily backups for it all of the time, so that we could promptly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server
plans, so if you host several different sites, you will be able to separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for each website and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much easier to control and secure your sites. In case that an Internet site within your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
