Find out how you can use the "JailHost" option within your control panel and how it could protect your websites.
Using out-of-date apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords always poses a threat to your Internet sites since these things make it easier hack them. Things will get even worse if you have a couple of websites since all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker gets control of only one of them. For this reason we have introduced JailHost - an advanced security option that isolates Internet sites from each other. In the event that a website gets compromised, its attacker will be unable to find 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 will never be a substitute for performing regular script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize any damage to your websites significantly, so you will need to fix only one site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting
packages, so you can protect your websites with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really effortless. Unlike some 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, making the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the infected one, therefore we will be able to recover it to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name because you may need to use some script that accesses different folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it effortlessly via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all folders can be isolated from each other. If any one of your websites is hacked, we'll be able to almost instantly restore it because of the several daily backups which we will keep and in the mean time the attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be blocked.
