What are the main advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they are less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these situations, it won't be a challenge for a hacker to take over the website and from that point on to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the same account. To avoid this scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has only to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content inside your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll allow you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single cloud web hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is rather easy. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any special skills in order to keep your Internet sites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use a script that needs access to a different folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long as we will have several daily backups for it at all times, so that we can easily restore it.
