What are the main advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised site can make lots of damage to all of your sites, because gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an innovative security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a 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 does not mean that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your sites in a shared website hosting
account from our firm, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for many different websites don't get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. In case a secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it in a short time because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server
packages, so in case you host several Internet sites, you can isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. The option should be activated for each and every website and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it simpler to take care of and protect your Internet sites. In case that a website inside your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged site in a short time since we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
