What are the basic benefits of having the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your websites, since getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared web hosting
packages that we offer and you could enable it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a big difference. You can pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content because you could have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it really easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use a certain script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you can activate it with ease via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple websites as it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the very same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be isolated from one another. If any of your sites gets hacked, we will be able to promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be blocked.
