Know what precisely ‘JailHost’ represents. Discover the benefits associated with enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
In case you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all your websites, because gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting
packages that we provide and you can turn it on with only a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to select which websites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your websites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, so if you host multiple sites, you can easily isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for every single website and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to control and shield all your websites. In case that an Internet site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the affected site in a short time because we will have multiple backups of your content.
