What are the actual pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple sites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all of your sites, as getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an innovative security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites 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 Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the web hosting plans that we offer and you could turn it on with just a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use this option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some site where you prefer to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your website hosting account. Yet, the option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could restore it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
