Learn just what exactly ‘JailHost’ represents. Find out the primary advantages of enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
If you host multiple Internet sites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, because gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default as you might use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you could secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential attacks.
