In case you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all your websites, as gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites 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 will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared website hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect each of your Internet sites with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is really simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we will have several daily backup copies for the infected one, so that we will be able to bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host a couple of Internet sites, you can isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each and every site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to maintain and protect your websites. In case that an Internet site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected website in a short time as we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
