In case you host multiple sites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all of your websites, as getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site 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 does not mean that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the web hosting packages that we provide and you can enable it with only a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost can make a big difference. You will be able to choose which sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content since you could have some site where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host several sites, you will be able to separate them from each other and keep them safe. The option has to be activated for every single website and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much easier to manage and shield all your Internet sites. In case that a site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected Internet site very quickly since we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
