What are the actual pros of activating the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and following that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted within the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content inside your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting
packages that we offer and you could turn it on with only a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a major difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content since you may have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Yet, the option will add one more level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could restore it really easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default because you may use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you can protect all other websites by separating them from each other. This is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
