What are the basic advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting
packages, so you'll be able to protect any of your sites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default so as to prevent disturbing any sites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really effortless. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, which means that we will be able to recover it to its original state in just a few minutes.
