Find out what exactly ‘JailHost’ means. Find the advantages of activating this option for your hosted domains.
Using out-of-date applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your sites since these things make it much easier to hack them. Things can get worse in case you have a few different Internet sites as all of them will be in danger when an attacker takes over only one of them. This is the reason why we've created JailHost - an advanced level security option that isolates Internet sites from each other. In the event that a site is compromised, its attacker will be unable to see or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all other sites in the account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option will never replace carrying out routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one Internet site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect any of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other sites is very simple. Unlike other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we will have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, therefore we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state within a few minutes.
