What are the basic advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these instances, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other sites which are hosted within the very same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option known as JailHost. It limits the access that a script has only to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost can't replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared web hosting
plans that we provide and you could enable it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a significant difference. You will be able to select which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
