Learn just what exactly ‘JailHost’ signifies. Discover the advantages of activating this option for your hosted domains.
In case you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, just a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, because getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every web hosting
plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is far easier. Allowing JailHost for any website takes just a few clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to maintain your websites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use some script which requires access to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so we can quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans come with JailHost integrated by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name as you may need to use a script that accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it easily through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites as it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder as it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all folders can be separated from each other. In case that any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we will quickly restore it because of the several daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be stopped.
