What are the advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using outdated apps or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always a risk for your Internet sites because these things make it much easier to hack them. Things can get even worse when you have several websites because all of them will be in danger if an attacker gets control of only one of them. Because of this we've developed JailHost - an advanced level security option which isolates sites from each other. In the event that a site is compromised, the attacker will be unable to find or access any other content outside the site folder, so all other Internet sites part of this account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option won't substitute performing regular script updates or using complex passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one website instead of all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
In case you host your websites in a shared hosting
account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all plans and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for many different sites do not get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all other folders is very simple. In case a secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it promptly because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans, so in case you host multiple Internet sites, you can easily separate them from one another so as to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for each and every site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to take care of and secure your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site in a short time since we will have multiple backups of your content.
