What are the main pros of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. That way, just a single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites in a cloud web hosting account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different Internet sites don't get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but securing all the other folders is very easy. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it very quickly because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
