What are the actual advantages of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised website will do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared website hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content since you could have some site where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it really easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
