Find out what exactly ‘JailHost’ signifies. Discover the benefits associated with enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and from that point on to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted in the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option called JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't substitute the safety measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
In case you host your websites inside a website hosting account from our firm, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various Internet sites don't get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all other folders is simple and easy. In case any secured site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it very quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
