If you host multiple Internet sites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your sites, because gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your sites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all plans and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different websites don't get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all the other folders is very simple. In case a protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost integrated by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain because you may wish to use a certain script that accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you can activate it effortlessly via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple websites since it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several websites in the very same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all folders can be isolated from each other. If any one of your sites gets hacked, we will promptly restore it using the several daily backups that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be blocked.
