Understand exactly what ‘JailHost’ stands for. Find the benefits associated with enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
Using obsolete applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords always poses a threat to your websites because these things make it easier hack them. Things get worse when you have several websites as all of them will be in danger when an attacker gets control of just one of them. For this reason we have developed JailHost - an advanced security option which isolates Internet sites from each other. In the event that a website is compromised, its attacker will not be able to see or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all the rest of the Internet sites in the account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option will not be a substitute for doing regular script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one site instead of all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites within a cloud web hosting
account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different sites never get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is simple and easy. If a secured site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it easily since we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default for the reason that you might use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can secure all other websites by separating them from one another. It is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future intrusions.
