What are the benefits of activating the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using outdated applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords always poses a threat to your Internet sites as these things make it much easier to hack them. Things get worse if you have multiple Internet sites as all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of only one of them. Because of this we've created JailHost - an advanced level security option which isolates Internet sites from each other. In the event that a website is compromised, its attacker will be unable to view or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all other websites part of the account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option does not replace carrying out regular script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one Internet site not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your websites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all plans and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different Internet sites never get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all the other folders is really easy. If a secured Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to restore it without delay as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.
