In case you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, since gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an innovative security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other 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 websites up-to-date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting packages, so you will be able to protect all of your websites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any sites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really effortless. Unlike various other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very 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 an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be protected and we always have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we will be able to bring it back to its initial state in just 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 several clicks. It is not activated by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to 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 you can do this quickly even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately because we'll have several daily backup copies of the whole account.
