What are the pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using obsolete applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your websites since these things make it much easier to hack them. Things can get worse when you have several Internet sites as all of them will be in danger when an attacker gets control of only one of them. For this reason we've developed JailHost - an advanced security option which isolates sites from each other. In the event that a website gets compromised, the attacker will be unable to view or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the other websites in the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option does not substitute performing regular script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your websites significantly, so you will need to fix only one site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting
plans that we offer and you can activate it with just a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost can make a big difference. You will be able to choose which sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name since you may need to use a specific script which accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you can activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple websites because it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be isolated from one another. In case that any of your sites gets hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and in the mean time the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be cut off.
