Learn exactly what ‘JailHost’ represents. Uncover the primary advantages of enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
It's not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they're 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 instances, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the site and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the very same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an efficient security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content in your account, thus the damage will be small. Of course, employing JailHost does not replace the security measures you need to 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
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single cloud web hosting
plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed within a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate will be rather easy. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to keep your Internet sites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use a script that needs accessibility to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long since we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we could promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting
packages come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name since you may want to use a certain script which accesses different folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it with ease via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be isolated from one another. If any of your websites is hacked, we'll be able to promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other sites will be blocked.
