What are the basic pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the website hosting
plans that we offer and you can activate it with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some website where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
