What are the actual benefits of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, because getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single cloud website hosting
plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up within a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate will be far easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any special skills to maintain your sites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script that requires access to a different folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for too long as we'll have several daily backup copies for it at all times, so we can promptly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain name since you may want to use a certain script which accesses multiple folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it with ease via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple websites because it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder like it often happens with many other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any one of your sites gets hacked, we will promptly restore it thanks to the several daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
