Find out just what ‘JailHost’ signifies. Uncover the advantages from enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
It isn't uncommon for many users to use weak passwords considering that they're 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 hard for a hacker to take control of the Internet site and after that to take control of other Internet sites which may be hosted in the same account. In order to avoid this kind of a scenario, we have added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access that a script has exclusively to its own folder, so in the event that one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content part of your account, which means that the damage will be small. Of course, using JailHost doesn't replace the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it'll help you to limit any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting packages that we offer and you could enable it with only a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a major difference. You can choose which sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content since you may have some site where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your websites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it fast and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
