What are the benefits of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost won't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a cloud website hosting
account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all packages and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for various Internet sites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all other folders is very simple. In case a protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it without delay as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
plans, so if you host a couple of websites, you can easily isolate them from one another and keep them safe. This feature must be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it simpler to maintain and shield your sites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged site in no time as we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
