What are the advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting
plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up in just a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate is easier. Allowing JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you will not need any special skills to keep your Internet sites safe. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use some script which requires access to a different folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long since we'll have a couple of daily backups for it at all times, so we can easily recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts which need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You can enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly since we will keep a few daily backup copies of your account.
