What are the benefits of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using out-of-date apps or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords always poses a threat to your sites since these things make it considerably easier hack them. Things get worse in case you have several Internet sites as all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker takes over just one of them. This is the reason why we have created JailHost - an advanced security feature which isolates Internet sites from each other. If a website is compromised, its attacker will be unable to find or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the websites hosted within this account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option won't replace doing routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one website instead of all of them.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every website hosting
plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed in just a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate is much simpler. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a few clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to keep your sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script that needs access to another folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long since we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so if you host a couple of websites, you will be able to isolate them from one another and keep them safe. The option must be activated for each site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much simpler to control and secure your sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected site very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
