Discover just what ‘JailHost’ represents. Find out the advantages from activating this option for your hosted domain names.
If you host multiple Internet sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised website can make lots of damage to all your Internet sites, because getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all plans and can be enabled for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different websites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but securing all other folders is simple and easy. If a protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to restore it promptly because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
