Know just what exactly ‘JailHost’ represents. Uncover the primary advantages of activating this feature for your hosted domain names.
If you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised website will do lots of damage to all of your websites, since getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting
solutions, so you can protect all of your sites with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we'll have multiple daily backups for the infected one, so that we'll be able to recover it to its original state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions come with JailHost included by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may want to use a specific script that accesses several folders in the account, but you can activate it without any difficulty via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder as it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any of your Internet sites is hacked, we'll be able to promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
