Know just what exactly ‘JailHost’ signifies. Find out the benefits of activating this option for your hosted domains.
Using out-of-date apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your sites because these things make it much easier to hack them. This will get worse in case you have several sites because all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker gets control of just one of them. For this reason we have introduced JailHost - an advanced level security feature that isolates sites from each other. If a website is compromised, the attacker will be unable to see or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the other Internet sites in the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option will never be a substitute for performing frequent script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one Internet site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared web hosting
packages that we offer and you can activate it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You can select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages, so if you host multiple websites, you can easily isolate them from each other and keep them safe. The option must be activated for each site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to take care of and shield all of your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected website in a short time as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
