Find out just what ‘JailHost’ means. Find the primary advantages of activating this option for your hosted domains.
Using obsolete applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your websites since these things make it much easier to hack them. Things can get even worse if you have a few different Internet sites since all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker gets control of only one of them. For this reason we have developed JailHost - an advanced security feature which isolates sites from each other. In case a website gets compromised, its attacker will not be able to see or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all the rest of the websites part of the account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option cannot be a substitute for performing regular script updates or using proper passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one website and not all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for various Internet sites do not get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it easily because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups from Hepsia.
