What are the actual advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the website and from that point on to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud web hosting
plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Every single 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 some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate will be incredibly easier. Enabling JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to keep your sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use some script that needs accessibility to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for too long since we will have a couple of daily backups for it all the time, so we can promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default simply because you may use an app that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you will be able to protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential intrusions.
