What are the actual advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the Internet site and following that to take control of other websites which are hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has solely to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost does not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single website hosting
plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping the sites separate is quite easy. Activating JailHost for any website takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you will not need any specific skills in order to maintain your sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use a script which needs accessibility to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for too long since we will have several daily backup copies for it all of the time, so we could promptly recover it.
