If you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, since gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all web hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect any of your sites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we'll have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so we can restore it to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and you could activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was right away because we'll keep a few daily backup copies of the whole account.
