What are the advantages of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using out-of-date applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your websites as these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things will get even worse if you have multiple Internet sites because all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker gets control of only one of them. This is the reason why we've developed JailHost - an advanced level security option that isolates websites from each other. If an Internet site gets compromised, the attacker will not be able to see or access any other content outside the website folder, so all the other websites part of this account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option doesn't replace performing routine script updates or using complex passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one site instead of all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting
plans that we provide and you can enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost can make a major difference. You will be able to choose which websites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you may have some website where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add an extra level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You can enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly since we'll store a couple of daily backup copies of the entire account.
