What are the pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple Internet sites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a top-notch security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for many different websites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all other folders is very simple. In case any protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it quickly as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.
