What are the actual benefits of enabling the JailHost functionality? What is 'JailHost', anyway?
Using outdated apps or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords always poses a threat to your Internet sites as these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things will get even worse if you have a lot of sites because all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker takes over just one of them. Because of this we have introduced JailHost - an advanced level security option that isolates sites from each other. If a website gets compromised, its attacker will not be able to find or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the other websites in the account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option cannot substitute performing regular script updates or using difficult passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you will need to fix only one Internet site rather than all of them.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you may use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you can easily secure all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
