What are the actual benefits of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all your websites, because getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
If you host your websites within a cloud hosting
account from our firm, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for many different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. In case any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it in a short time because we will 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 Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, so if you host several Internet sites, you can easily separate them from each other to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each and every Internet site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much simpler to take care of and protect your websites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected Internet site before you know it since we will have multiple backups of your content.
