What are the main advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the website and from there on to take control of other websites that are hosted in the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared website hosting
plans that we offer and you can enable it with just a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to select which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, the option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it really easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, so in case you host several different websites, you can easily isolate them from one another to keep them safe. This feature must be activated for every single site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to take care of and protect your websites. In case that an Internet site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the damaged Internet site very quickly as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
