What are the pros of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using outdated applications or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites as these things make it considerably easier hack them. This will get worse when you have a lot of Internet sites because all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of only one of them. Because of this we've created JailHost - an advanced security option that isolates websites from each other. In the event that an Internet site is compromised, the attacker will be unable to see or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all the other Internet sites part of this account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option cannot be a substitute for doing routine script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one site instead of all of them.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your sites in a shared website hosting
account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be activated for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different websites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all of the other folders is very simple. In case a secured website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it quickly because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so if you host a couple of websites, you can easily isolate them from each other and keep them safe. The option should be activated for each and every Internet site and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much simpler to control and shield all your websites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the affected website in a short time as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
