Find out what precisely ‘JailHost’ represents. Uncover the benefits of enabling this option for your hosted domains.
In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised website can make lots of damage to all your sites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a top-notch security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared website hosting
plans that we offer and you could turn it on with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a significant difference. You can choose which websites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could recover it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server
plans and you will be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not enabled by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you lack previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was right away as we'll store a couple of daily backup copies of your entire account.
