What are the pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using obsolete applications or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your sites because these things make it easier hack them. Things get worse when you have a lot of sites as all of them will be in danger if an attacker gets control of only one of them. This is the reason why we have developed JailHost - an advanced security feature which isolates sites from each other. In case a website gets compromised, the attacker will not be able to see or access any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the sites hosted within this account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option will never replace doing frequent script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one website instead of all of them.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared web hosting packages that we offer and you could enable it with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a significant difference. You can pick which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content since you may have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add one more level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
