Learn precisely what ‘JailHost’ signifies. Uncover the benefits of enabling this option for your hosted domain names.
In case you host multiple Internet sites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, because getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting
packages, so you will be able to protect each of your websites with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really easy. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be protected and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to bring it back to its original state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and you could activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even when you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was without delay as we'll keep a few daily backups of the entire account.
