Know just what ‘JailHost’ means. Discover the advantages of enabling this option for your hosted domains.
Using outdated applications or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always a risk for your sites as these things make it easier hack them. Things can get even worse in case you have a couple of websites as all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of only one of them. Because of this we have introduced JailHost - an advanced level security feature which isolates Internet sites from each other. In case an Internet site gets compromised, its attacker will not be able to view or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all the other Internet sites part of this account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will never be a substitute for performing regular script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one Internet site instead of all of them.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every shared website hosting
plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up in just a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate will be easier. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to maintain your websites safe. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use a script which needs access to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long since we'll have several daily backup copies for it at all times, so that we could promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you may use an app that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This is really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future attacks.
