What are the basic benefits of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using obsolete applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords always poses a threat to your Internet sites as these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things get worse if you have a lot of websites since all of them will be in danger if an attacker takes over only one of them. This is the reason why we've developed JailHost - an advanced security option that isolates Internet sites from each other. If a website is compromised, its attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the sites part of this account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will never replace carrying out routine script updates or using complex passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one Internet site and not all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your websites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various sites never get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it quickly since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups in Hepsia.
