What are the pros of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple websites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your websites, as gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared website hosting packages that we provide and you can turn it on 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, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You can pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add one more level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
