Learn exactly what ‘JailHost’ refers to. Identify the benefits of activating this option for your hosted domains.
In case you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised site will do lots of damage to all your websites, because gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a top-notch security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud web hosting
plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up within a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate is much easier. Activating JailHost for any website takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills in order to maintain your Internet sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use a script that needs accessibility to a different folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long because we'll have a couple of daily backups for it at all times, so that we could promptly restore it.
