Know just what ‘JailHost’ stands for. Uncover the advantages from activating this option for your hosted domains.
It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other websites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost won't replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting
solutions, so you will be able to protect any of your sites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default so as to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we can recover it to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may want to use some script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you can activate it without difficulty via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple websites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all folders can be isolated from one another. In case that any one of your websites is hacked, we will promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be stopped.
