Know what exactly ‘JailHost’ stands for. Identify the advantages from enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
Using obsolete applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your Internet sites since these things make it much easier to hack them. This will get worse in case you have multiple sites as all of them will be in danger when an attacker gets control of just one of them. Because of this we've introduced JailHost - an advanced security feature which isolates sites from each other. If an Internet site gets compromised, the attacker will be unable to view or access any other content outside the site folder, so all other sites inside the account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option will not replace performing routine script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you will need to fix only one Internet site and not all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect all of your sites with just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default in order to avoid disturbing any websites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be protected and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we can bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
