In case you host multiple Internet sites in 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 different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, because getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared web hosting plans, so you could protect your sites with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default so as to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other websites will be safe and we always have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, which means that we'll be able to bring it back to its original state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain because you may need to use a certain script which accesses different folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from each other. If any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll be able to almost instantly restore it thanks to the several daily backups which we will keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be cut off.
