Find out exactly what ‘JailHost’ represents. Find the primary advantages of activating this feature for your hosted domains.
Using outdated apps or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites because these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things get worse if you have a few different Internet sites because all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker takes over only one of them. This is the reason why we've developed JailHost - an advanced security feature that isolates sites from each other. In case an Internet site gets compromised, the attacker will be unable to find or access any other content outside the site folder, so all the other websites part of the account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option will never substitute performing routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one website not all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting
solutions, so you'll be able to protect all of your websites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is very quick. Unlike some other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different Internet 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 restore it to its original state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
packages come with JailHost included by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain because you may wish to use a specific script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it with ease via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any one of your websites gets hacked, we'll promptly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
