If you host multiple sites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all your sites, since getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up within just a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is rather easy. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to maintain your sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use a script that needs accessibility to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default because you may use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you can easily protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This is really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential intrusions.
