Learn precisely what ‘JailHost’ represents. Identify the advantages of activating this feature for your hosted domain names.
In case you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your websites, because getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting
plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up in just a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate will be incredibly easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills in order to maintain your Internet sites safe. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use a script which requires accessibility to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long because we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so we could quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so if you host several websites, you can isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This option has to be activated for every single site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to control and secure all your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site in your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected site very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
