What are the basic advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. To avoid this kind of a scenario, we've added an advanced security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to see any other content within your account, so the damage will be minimal. Of course, using JailHost does not replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting
solutions, so you'll be able to protect all of your websites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other websites is very easy. 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 own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we will be able to bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
