What are the advantages of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using obsolete apps or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your sites because these things make it much easier to hack them. Things can get even worse when you have a couple of websites as all of them will be in danger when an attacker gets control of just one of them. This is the reason why we have created JailHost - an advanced level security feature which isolates Internet sites from each other. If a website is compromised, its attacker will not be able to see or gain access to any other content outside the site folder, so all other Internet sites part of this account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option will not substitute carrying out routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you'll need to fix only one website instead of all of them.
JailHost in Web Hosting
If you host your sites in a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be enabled for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for many different websites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all other folders is simple and easy. In case a protected website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to recover it promptly since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.
