Know precisely what ‘JailHost’ refers to. Uncover the primary advantages of enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which are hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting
solutions, so you will be able to protect your websites with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default so as to avoid disturbing any sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really quick. Unlike other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we will have several daily backups for the damaged one, so that we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and you could activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have individual folders that can be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately as we'll keep a few daily backups of your entire account.
