Learn what precisely ‘JailHost’ signifies. Discover the primary advantages of enabling this option for your hosted domain names.
Using out-of-date applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always a risk for your websites since these things make it much easier to hack them. Things get worse in case you have several sites as all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of only one of them. This is the reason why we've introduced JailHost - an advanced level security feature which isolates websites from each other. In case an Internet site gets compromised, its attacker will not be able to find or access any other content outside the site folder, so all the rest of the Internet sites part of this account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option doesn't be a substitute for doing routine script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one website rather than all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting
account from our company, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all plans and can be activated for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for various Internet sites never get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all the other folders is very easy. If a protected website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it very quickly because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server
plans and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately since we'll have a few daily backup copies of your account.
