What are the basic pros of activating the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your sites inside a cloud website hosting
account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for many different websites do not get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but securing all other folders is really easy. In case any secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it in a short time because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server
plans, so in case you host several sites, you will be able to isolate them from one another in order to keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single Internet site and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to control and shield all your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged website before you know it because we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
