What are the basic pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and following that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we have added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a shared website hosting
account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different Internet sites never get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but securing all other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it without delay since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions come with JailHost included by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may need to use a specific script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you can activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any one of your sites is hacked, we will quickly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be stopped.
