What are the benefits of activating the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple Internet sites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised site can make a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is a lot easier. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you won't need any special skills in order to maintain your websites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use some script that needs access to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long since we will have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so we can easily recover it.
