In case you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the hosting packages that we offer and you could activate it with only a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a big difference. You can pick which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some site where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so if you host several sites, you'll be able to separate them from one another in order to keep them safe. The option should be activated for each and every site and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to manage and protect all your Internet sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected site before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
