Understand what exactly ‘JailHost’ represents. Uncover the benefits associated with activating this feature for your hosted domain names.
In case you host multiple websites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised site will do lots of damage to all your sites, because gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server solutions come with JailHost included by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name since you may wish to use a script which accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it easily via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple websites as it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. If any one of your websites gets hacked, we will quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
