What are the main pros of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using outdated applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites as these things make it considerably easier hack them. Things will get even worse when you have a couple of Internet sites because all of them will be in danger when an attacker takes over just one of them. Because of this we have created JailHost - an advanced level security option which isolates websites from each other. If a site is compromised, its attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the other Internet sites hosted within this account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option won't replace doing routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one website and not all of them.
JailHost in Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all website hosting
solutions, so you can protect each of your sites with just a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any websites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very easy. Unlike other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we'll have several daily backup copies for the infected one, so that we will be able to restore it to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
plans come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain because you may want to use a specific script which accesses different folders in the account, yet you can activate it without difficulty via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder as it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any one of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll be able to quickly restore it thanks to the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other sites will be blocked.
