Discover precisely what ‘JailHost’ refers to. Discover the benefits of enabling this option for your hosted domain names.
If you host multiple sites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all your sites, since getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a top-notch security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every website hosting
plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed within just a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate is rather easy. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to maintain your sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use some script that requires accessibility to another folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long because we'll have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we could promptly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may want to use some script which accesses several folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it easily through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. If any one of your sites is hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it using the several daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
