If you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all your websites, because gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect each of your Internet sites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is very simple. Unlike other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we always have several daily backups for the affected one, so that we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name since you may want to use a certain script which accesses several folders in the account, but you can activate it without any difficulty via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from one another. If any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be stopped.
