If you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, because getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the web hosting packages that we provide and you can activate it with just a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a major difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked based on your content as you could have some site where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add an additional level of security to your sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it quick and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default as you may use an app which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you will be able to protect all other websites by isolating them from one another. This will be super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
