If you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you can protect each of your websites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is very effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we always have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you will be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not enabled by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You could activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even if you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was in no time as we'll keep a couple of daily backups of your account.
