What are the actual pros of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all of your websites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared web hosting packages that we provide and you could activate it with just a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a big difference. You will be able to choose which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could recover it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
