What are the pros of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using obsolete applications or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites because these things make it considerably easier hack them. This will get worse when you have a couple of Internet sites since all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker takes over just one of them. For this reason we've developed JailHost - an advanced level security option that isolates sites from each other. In case a site gets compromised, the attacker will not be able to find or access any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the sites hosted within this account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option doesn't replace carrying out routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you will have to fix only one site and not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your websites in a shared website hosting
account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all plans and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different Internet sites do not get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case a secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it without delay since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server
packages, so if you host several websites, you'll be able to separate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for every single site and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it simpler to control and shield your Internet sites. In case that a website in your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the damaged website in no time since we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
