What are the basic advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple sites inside the same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all your websites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect any of your sites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very quick. Unlike 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 control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we'll have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, so that we will be able to recover it to its original state within a few minutes.
