Know what exactly ‘JailHost’ represents. Find out the benefits associated with activating this option for your hosted domain names.
It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely 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 access any other content inside your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost can't substitute 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 limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the hosting
packages that we offer and you can turn it on with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a major difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or admins to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, this option will add a further level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could recover it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting
plans, so if you host several different sites, you can easily isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each and every site and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it simpler to take care of and shield all of your sites. In case that an Internet site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged Internet site before you know it as we will have multiple backups of your content.
