Understand what precisely ‘JailHost’ signifies. Find the primary advantages of activating this feature for your hosted domains.
In case you host multiple websites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised site will do lots of damage to all of your sites, because gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared hosting
packages that we offer and you can turn it on with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a big difference. You will be able to choose which sites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some website where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and you could activate it with a few clicks. It is not enabled by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you lack previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately because we will keep a few daily backups of the entire account.
