What are the basic advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using obsolete apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always a risk for your websites as these things make it much easier to hack them. Things will get even worse when you have several websites as all of them will be in danger when an attacker takes over only one of them. This is the reason why we have developed JailHost - an advanced security feature that isolates sites from each other. In case a site gets compromised, its attacker will not be able to see or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the sites inside the account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option won't substitute doing routine script updates or using complex passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one Internet site not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting
packages, so you can protect your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default so as to prevent interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is really quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we will have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, so we'll be able to recover it to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name because you may wish to use a specific script which accesses different folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it without any difficulty through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites because it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any one of your websites gets hacked, we will quickly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
