Find out what precisely ‘JailHost’ means. Discover the advantages from activating this option for your hosted domain names.
In case you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, because gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
In case you host your websites in a web hosting
account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be activated for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for different websites never get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case a secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it easily because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server
packages, so if you host multiple Internet sites, you can easily isolate them from each other and keep them safe. The option has to be activated for each site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to maintain and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected Internet site before you know it because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
