Discover just what exactly ‘JailHost’ stands for. Find the advantages of enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
In case you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised site can make lots of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting plans, so you could protect your Internet sites with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default to prevent interfering with any websites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is really quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes 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 infected one, so we will be able to recover it to its original state in a couple of minutes.
