What are the actual benefits of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are 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 a challenge for a hacker to take control of the site and from there on to take control of other sites which are hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an innovative security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only 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 access any other content part of your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single cloud hosting
plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate is far easier. Allowing JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to keep your websites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script that needs accessibility to a different folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we will have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so we could quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain since you may need to use some script which accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it without any difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several websites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from each other. If any of your websites is hacked, we can promptly restore it because of the multiple daily backups which we will keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be blocked.
