Learn just what exactly ‘JailHost’ stands for. Find out the benefits of enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
It's not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites which may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't substitute the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your sites in a cloud hosting
account from our company, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for different Internet sites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but securing all of the other folders is very easy. In case any protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to restore it easily as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default since you might use an application that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you'll be able to protect all other websites by separating them from one another. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential intrusions.
