Find out precisely what ‘JailHost’ represents. Find out the advantages of activating this feature for your hosted domain names.
In case you host multiple sites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all your sites, because gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites inside a shared website hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all plans and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various sites do not get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all of the other folders is simple and easy. If any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it easily since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.
