What are the pros of activating the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
If you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised website can make lots of damage to all your websites, because getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all hosting
solutions, so you can protect all of your websites with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default in order to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, so we can restore it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
