Understand what precisely ‘JailHost’ represents. Find the benefits of enabling this feature for your hosted domain names.
It is not unusual for a lot of users to use weak passwords since they are much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and from that point on to take control of other sites that are hosted within the same account. To prevent this scenario, we've added an excellent security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has solely to its own folder, so in case one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to view any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost can't replace the safety measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, yet it'll enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared website hosting plans that we offer and you could turn it on with only a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You will be able to pick which websites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you may have some website where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you could recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
