In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your sites, since gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting packages that we offer and you can activate it with only a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a major difference. You can choose which sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host multiple websites, you'll be able to separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to maintain and shield all your websites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected Internet site in no time because we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
