What are the actual benefits of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords simply because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and after that to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost will not replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will help you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting
account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various sites don't get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all the other folders is very simple. If any protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly since we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server
plans and you'll be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was right away since we will keep a couple of daily backup copies of your entire account.
