Learn just what ‘JailHost’ stands for. Identify the benefits of enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords since they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we've added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content in your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting
solutions, so you can protect all of your websites with only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default so as to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is really easy. Unlike various other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we will be able to bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you can secure all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future attacks.
