Know exactly what ‘JailHost’ represents. Uncover the advantages from enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
Using out-of-date apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always a risk for your sites because these things make it easier hack them. Things will get even worse when you have multiple Internet sites as all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker takes over just one of them. Because of this we've developed JailHost - an advanced level security feature which isolates sites from each other. In the event that a website is compromised, the attacker will not be able to find or access any other content outside the website folder, so all the other websites inside the account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will never be a substitute for doing routine script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you will need to fix only one site instead of all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your sites inside a cloud website hosting
account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for various websites do not get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all other folders is very simple. If a secured site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it easily as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain since you may need to use a certain script that accesses several folders in the account, but you can activate it effortlessly from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple websites as it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the very same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from one another. In case that any one of your sites gets hacked, we will quickly restore it thanks to the several daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other websites will be blocked.
