Learn just what exactly ‘JailHost’ refers to. Discover the benefits associated with enabling this option for your hosted domain names.
If you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised site will do lots of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an outstanding security option called 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 resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud web hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect all of your sites with just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be protected and we'll have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
