What are the basic pros of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using outdated applications or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites because these things make it easier hack them. This will get worse if you have a few different sites as all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker takes over just one of them. For this reason we've developed JailHost - an advanced level security option that isolates sites from each other. In the event that a website gets compromised, its 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 this account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option does not be a substitute for carrying out routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one website rather than all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting
account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different websites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all other folders is really easy. In case any protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it easily because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you can start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default as you might use an app which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you can easily secure all other websites by separating them from each other. It is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
