What are the main pros of having the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and immediately after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single website hosting
plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed in just a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate will be easier. Allowing JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to maintain your sites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you wish to use a script which needs accessibility to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long because we'll have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so we could promptly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you can activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can protect all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential intrusions.
