Know exactly what ‘JailHost’ represents. Uncover the benefits associated with enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
Using obsolete apps or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords is always a risk for your sites because these things make it considerably easier hack them. Things can get worse when you have several Internet sites as all of them will be in danger if an attacker gets control of only one of them. Because of this we've introduced JailHost - an advanced level security feature that isolates sites from each other. If a site gets compromised, the attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all other Internet sites part of this account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will never substitute performing routine script updates or using proper passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your sites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one Internet site and not all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your websites in a cloud hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for different websites do not get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but securing all the other folders is very simple. In case any secured site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it without delay as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.
