If you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised site can make lots of damage to all your websites, since gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other 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 Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with just a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost can make a major difference. You can choose which sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some Internet site where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default simply because you may use an application that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you will be able to protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
