What are the basic benefits of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple sites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, because getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a brand new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will 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 Website Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared website hosting
solutions, so you could protect any of your websites with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is very easy. Unlike other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we'll have several daily backups for the damaged one, so that we'll be able to restore it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you will be able to start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default as you might use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you could protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. It is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential attacks.
