If you host multiple sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised website will do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, since gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the hosting plans that we provide and you can turn it on with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, the option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you can protect all other sites by separating them from each other. This will be quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future attacks.
