What are the actual benefits of having the JailHost functionality? What exactly is 'JailHost', anyway?
It is not uncommon for a lot of users to use weak passwords simply because they're easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long period of time. In either of these cases, it won't be difficult for a hacker to take over the site and after that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the very same account. To avoid this scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your 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 small. Needless to say, using JailHost will not replace the security measures you should take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it'll help you to restrict any damage to one site only.
JailHost in Website Hosting
If you host your sites inside a website hosting account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all packages and can be activated for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different sites don't get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all other folders is really easy. In case any secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it very quickly as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
