Discover precisely what ‘JailHost’ refers to. Identify the benefits of enabling this option for your hosted domains.
Using out-of-date applications or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always a risk for your websites because these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things can get even worse in case you have multiple Internet sites since all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of just one of them. This is the reason why we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security option which isolates Internet sites from each other. If an Internet site gets compromised, the attacker will not be able to view or access any other content outside the site folder, so all other Internet sites inside the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option will not substitute doing regular script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared website hosting
account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for many different Internet sites do not get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is very simple. In case any secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it in a short time as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default as you may use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you'll be able to protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from one another. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential attacks.
