What are the basic pros of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other websites that are hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't substitute the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting
packages that we provide and you could turn it on with only a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a major difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content since you may have some website where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, this option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could recover it easy and fast using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server
packages, so in case you host several different Internet sites, you can isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much easier to manage and secure all of your websites. In case that a website within your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged Internet site before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
