What are the basic advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other websites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an efficient security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost does not replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you can protect all of your sites with just a couple of 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 need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really simple. Unlike 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, making the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be shielded and we always have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we can recover it to its initial state within a few minutes.
