What are the advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
If you host your websites within a shared hosting
account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various websites never get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but securing all of the other folders is very simple. If any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it quickly as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so if you host multiple sites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This option should be activated for each and every Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to manage and shield all of your websites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected website in no time since we will have multiple backups of your content.
