What are the pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple sites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised site can make a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an innovative security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site in 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 imply that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting
plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate will be quite easy. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you will not need any special skills in order to maintain your sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use some script that requires access to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we'll have several daily backups for it all of the time, so we could easily recover it.
