Learn how you can take full advantage of the "JailHost" option inside your control panel and how it could protect your websites.
It is not uncommon for many users to use weak passwords because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take control of the site and following that to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to avoid this scenario, we have added an excellent security option called JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content within your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Of course, employing JailHost doesn't replace the security measures you need to take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will enable you to restrict the damage to one site only.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the content is not mixed inside a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate is much easier. Allowing JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills in order to maintain your websites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you wish to use some script which needs accessibility to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so we could promptly restore it.
