If you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all of your websites, because getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We have included JailHost for all hosting packages, so you will be able to protect any of your websites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very easy. Unlike various other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other websites will be safe and we always have several daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we'll be able to recover it to its initial state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host several different Internet sites, you'll be able to separate them from one another and keep them safe. This feature must be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to take care of and shield your sites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the damaged Internet site in no time since we will have multiple backups of your content.
