Understand what precisely ‘JailHost’ means. Discover the benefits of enabling this feature for your hosted domains.
In case you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all of your websites, since gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared web hosting packages that we provide and you can enable it with just a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a big difference. You can choose which websites will use this option and will be locked based on your content because you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Yet, this option will add one more level of security to your sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
