In case you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible 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 older scripts with known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all your websites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect each of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default to prevent interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really easy. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other websites will be shielded and we always have several daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to recover it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you will be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not enabled by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was in no time because we'll keep a few daily backups of the entire account.
