Learn precisely what ‘JailHost’ means. Identify the advantages from enabling this option for your hosted domains.
In case you host multiple sites inside the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all your sites, because getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a top-notch security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared web hosting
solutions, so you could protect each of your sites with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really easy. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we'll have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we can restore it to its original state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, so in case you host several different websites, you'll be able to separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This feature must be activated for every single Internet site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it simpler to control and secure all your sites. In case that an Internet site within your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected website in no time as we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
