What are the advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using out-of-date applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords is always a risk for your sites because these things make it easier hack them. This will get worse in case you have a couple of websites since all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker takes over only one of them. For this reason we have created JailHost - an advanced security option which isolates sites from each other. In case an Internet site is compromised, the attacker will be unable to view or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the Internet sites in the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option cannot be a substitute for doing frequent script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one Internet site instead of all of them.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud website hosting
plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is quite easy. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes just a few clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills in order to keep your sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use some script which requires access to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long because we will have several daily backups for it all the time, so that we could easily recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server
packages come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use a specific script which accesses different folders in the account, yet you can activate it effortlessly from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple Internet sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any of your Internet sites is hacked, we'll be able to almost instantly restore it because of the several daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
