Understand exactly what ‘JailHost’ signifies. Find the benefits associated with enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
It isn't uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it will not be hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent this scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll enable you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud website hosting plans, so you can protect your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very simple. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be shielded and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the affected one, so we'll be able to bring it back to its original state in a couple of minutes.
