What are the benefits of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all your websites, because gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting packages that we provide and you can activate it with only a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to pick which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you may have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it really easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
