What are the main advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other sites which may be hosted in the very same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a shared website hosting
account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be activated for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different websites never get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all of the other folders is very simple. If a protected website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it in a short time because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.
