Discover just what ‘JailHost’ represents. Discover the primary advantages of activating this option for your hosted domain names.
In case you host multiple websites inside the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
In case you host your websites in a web hosting account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be enabled for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for various websites never get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is really easy. In case a protected site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it easily as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.
