Know just what exactly ‘JailHost’ refers to. Find out the benefits of enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting
solutions, so you could protect your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we will be able to restore it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, so in case you host multiple websites, you will be able to isolate them from one another and keep them safe. This option should be activated for every single website and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it simpler to take care of and shield all your websites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected Internet site very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
