Understand just what ‘JailHost’ stands for. Find the benefits of activating this option for your hosted domain names.
If you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all of your sites, as getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you can protect any of your websites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default to avoid interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is very simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority 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 Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we'll have several daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we'll be able to recover it to its original state in a matter of minutes.
