Know just what exactly ‘JailHost’ refers to. Uncover the advantages from enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords considering that they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be hard 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 prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced security option named JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your sites 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, employing JailHost will not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all web hosting
plans, so you could protect your sites with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default to prevent interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other sites is very simple. Unlike other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you can activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default since you may use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you could secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
