Understand what precisely ‘JailHost’ represents. Find the benefits associated with activating this feature for your hosted domain names.
If you host multiple sites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all of your websites, since gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting
plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up within a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate will be easier. Enabling JailHost for any site takes only a few clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to keep your sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use some script which requires access to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long as we will have several daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we could quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting
plans come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may wish to use a script that accesses different folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it without any difficulty through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple websites since it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your websites is hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it using the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
