Discover what exactly ‘JailHost’ means. Find out the advantages of enabling this option for your hosted domain names.
Using obsolete applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using very simple passwords is always a risk for your Internet sites since these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things get worse if you have multiple sites because all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker takes over just one of them. This is the reason why we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security feature that isolates websites from each other. In case a website gets compromised, its attacker will not be able to view or access any other content outside the site folder, so all the other websites in the account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option doesn't be a substitute for doing regular script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one site not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your websites within a shared website hosting
account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different Internet sites never get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but securing all other folders is very easy. If any secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it without delay because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from working properly. You can enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly because we will store a few daily backup copies of the entire account.
