What are the actual benefits of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords considering that they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long time. In either of these situations, it will not be a challenge for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and following that to take control of other Internet sites that are hosted within the very same account. To prevent this kind of a scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just 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 access any other content within your account, which means that the damage will be small. Needless to say, employing JailHost can't substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost can make a big difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content since you may have some website where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add an additional level of security to your sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could recover it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
