Understand precisely what ‘JailHost’ stands for. Uncover the benefits associated with activating this feature for your hosted domains.
Using out-of-date apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using very simple passwords is always a risk for your sites since these things make it considerably easier hack them. Things get worse if you have a couple of sites since all of them will be in danger when an attacker gets control of only one of them. Because of this we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security feature which isolates sites from each other. In case an Internet site is compromised, the attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the sites inside the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option won't be a substitute for performing routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one website rather than all of them.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all web hosting
plans, so you'll be able to protect your websites with only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default to avoid disturbing any websites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other sites is really effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we can restore it to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server
plans and you could activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately because we will keep a couple of daily backups of your account.
