What are the main benefits of having the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using obsolete applications or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites because these things make it easier hack them. Things can get even worse when you have several websites since all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker takes over only one of them. Because of this we've created JailHost - an advanced level security option which isolates websites from each other. If a website gets compromised, its attacker will be unable to find or access any other content outside the website folder, so all the other websites in the account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option will never be a substitute for carrying out regular script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one Internet site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting
solutions, so you'll be able to protect all of your sites with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really easy. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we will have a couple of daily backups for the infected one, therefore we can restore it to its original state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You can enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately since we will store several daily backup copies of the whole account.
