If you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all of your websites, as getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an innovative security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet 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 doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We have included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect your Internet sites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any websites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is very quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be safe and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we'll be able to restore it to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name because you may want to use a certain script that accesses several folders in the account, but you can activate it without difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites since it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any of your websites gets hacked, we'll almost instantly restore it using the several daily backups which we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other Internet sites will be stopped.
