In case you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised site can make lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites within a web hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for different sites don't get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all other folders is very simple. In case any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it quickly since 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 Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host multiple websites, you can easily separate them from each other to keep them safe. The option should be activated for each site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to control and shield all your sites. 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 recover the damaged site in no time since we will have multiple backups of your content.
