What are the actual advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other websites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will enable you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting
plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick 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 many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed in just a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate will be quite easy. Allowing JailHost for any site takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to keep your Internet sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use a script that needs accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long since we'll have a couple of daily backups for it all of the time, so we could quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an application that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, yet you can protect all other sites by separating them from one another. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future attacks.
