If you host multiple websites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get 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 There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised website will do lots of damage to all your sites, since gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites updated, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your Internet sites within a cloud website hosting account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different websites never get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all of the other folders is very simple. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it in a short time because we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default simply because you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you'll be able to secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. This will be super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future intrusions.
