Learn exactly what ‘JailHost’ refers to. Find out the benefits associated with activating this feature for your hosted domains.
It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other websites which are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we've added an innovative security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content in your account, so the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all website hosting
plans, so you'll be able to protect all of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is really quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we will have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, so we will be able to recover it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
