What are the basic advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using out-of-date apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your sites because these things make it considerably easier hack them. Things get worse when you have a few different Internet sites as all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker takes over just one of them. For this reason we've created JailHost - an advanced level security option that isolates websites from each other. In the event that a website is compromised, the attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the websites part of the account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option does not be a substitute for carrying out frequent script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your websites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared web hosting
plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up inside a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate will be quite easy. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to keep your sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use some script which needs accessibility to another folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for long because we will have a couple of daily backups for it at all times, so we could easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server
solutions, so in case you host multiple sites, you can separate them from one another and keep them safe. This option must be activated for each and every site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much easier to control and secure your sites. In case that a site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged site before you know it as we will have multiple backups of your content.
