Know just what ‘JailHost’ signifies. Discover the advantages from activating this option for your hosted domains.
Using out-of-date apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords always poses a threat to your websites since these things make it easier hack them. This will get worse in case you have a couple of Internet sites as all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker gets control of just one of them. Because of this we have developed JailHost - an advanced security feature that isolates Internet sites from each other. In case a website is compromised, the attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all other websites part of this account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will never substitute performing regular script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your sites significantly, so you will need to fix only one Internet site and not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting
solutions, so you could protect any of your sites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default to prevent disturbing any websites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is very quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be safe and we will have a couple of daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we can restore it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an app that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you'll be able to secure all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
