Discover just what exactly ‘JailHost’ represents. Discover the benefits of activating this feature for your hosted domains.
In case you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud web hosting plans that we offer and you could enable it with only a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a big difference. You will be able to choose which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content as you could have some website where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, this feature will add one more level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
