What are the actual advantages of activating the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It's not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords simply because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that aren't updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be hard for a hacker to take over the Internet site and immediately after that to take control of other websites which may be hosted in the same account. To prevent such a scenario, we have added an excellent security option named JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has only to its own folder, so if 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, thus the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost won't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to limit the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud website hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect any of your sites with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any sites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be safe and we'll have several daily backups for the affected one, so that we can bring it back to its original state in a couple of minutes.
