In case you host multiple sites inside the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all your sites, because gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Website Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the website hosting plans that we provide and you can enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost will make a significant difference. You can choose which websites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some website where you'd like to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may wish to use a script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it with ease through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be separated from each other. If any one of your websites is hacked, we'll be able to quickly restore it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
