Find out just what ‘JailHost’ stands for. Discover the advantages of activating this option for your hosted domain names.
It isn't unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords because they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these instances, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other websites that are hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to see any other content within your account, therefore the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost will not replace the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll allow you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting
plans, so you'll be able to protect all of your sites with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default to prevent disturbing any sites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very simple. Unlike other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we can restore it to its initial state within a few minutes.
