What are the main advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It isn't uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting
packages, so you could protect each of your websites with just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to avoid disturbing any websites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be protected and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, therefore we can bring it back to its original state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server
solutions and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts which need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you lack previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was right away since we'll have several daily backups of your entire account.
