Discover just what exactly ‘JailHost’ signifies. Identify the advantages of activating this option for your hosted domain names.
Using out-of-date applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords always poses a threat to your websites because these things make it considerably easier hack them. Things will get even worse in case you have multiple websites since all of them will be in danger if an attacker takes over only one of them. This is the reason why we have introduced JailHost - an advanced level security option that isolates sites from each other. If a site is compromised, its attacker will be unable to view or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the other Internet sites hosted within this account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option will never replace performing regular script updates or using complex passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one Internet site not all of them.
JailHost in Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single 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 plans has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up within just a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate is incredibly easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes just a few clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills in order to keep your Internet sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script that requires accessibility to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we will have several daily backups for it all of the time, so we can promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so in case you host multiple Internet sites, you can isolate them from each other to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for each Internet site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much simpler to manage and secure all of your sites. In case that an Internet site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the damaged site in a short time because we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
