What are the pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that 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, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every shared hosting
plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate is quite easy. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to keep your sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use a script which requires accessibility to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long because we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so we could easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain name since you may wish to use a script which accesses different folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it effortlessly from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the very same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all folders can be separated from each other. In case that any of your websites is hacked, we'll be able to promptly restore it because of the several daily backup copies which we will keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
