In case you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all of your websites, as getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for every folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different sites don't get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all the other folders is very simple. If a protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host multiple websites, you can isolate them from one another to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for every single website and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to control and shield your sites. In case that an Internet site within your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the affected website in no time as we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
