In case you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, as getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the website hosting plans that we provide and you can enable it with only a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost can make a significant difference. You can choose which sites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some site where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you could recover it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so in case you host several different sites, you'll be able to isolate them from one another to keep them safe. This option should be activated for every single website and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it much easier to control and secure all your sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected site before you know it since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
