In case you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised site will do lots of damage to all of your sites, as getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud web hosting plans, so you could protect your websites with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is very easy. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we always have several daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we can restore it to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that require to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately since we will have a few daily backups of your account.
