Discover just what exactly ‘JailHost’ signifies. Uncover the advantages from activating this feature for your hosted domains.
Using outdated applications or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords always poses a threat to your sites since these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things can get even worse in case you have several websites since all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of just one of them. For this reason we've introduced JailHost - an advanced level security feature which isolates Internet sites from each other. If an Internet site gets compromised, the attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all the rest of the websites part of this account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option doesn't substitute performing routine script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one website and not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you can protect your sites with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we always have several daily backups for the damaged one, so that we will be able to bring it back to its original state in a matter of minutes.
