Learn exactly what ‘JailHost’ refers to. Identify the advantages from activating this option for your hosted domains.
It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted within the same account. To avoid such a scenario, we've added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content part of your account, so the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost will not substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up within a single main folder, so keeping your websites separate will be incredibly easier. Activating JailHost for any site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any special skills in order to keep your websites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use a script which requires accessibility to a different folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long as we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so we can easily recover it.
