What are the advantages of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect all of your websites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really simple. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we'll have several daily backups for the infected one, which means that we can restore it to its initial state within a few minutes.
