What are the main advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much 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 difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single website hosting
plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed in just a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate is much easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to maintain your Internet sites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use a script that needs access to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long because we will have several daily backups for it at all times, so we could easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default since you might use an app that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you could protect all other websites by separating them from one another. This is simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
