What are the advantages of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all your websites, since gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting
packages that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a big difference. You will be able to select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
