In case you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all of your websites, since gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up within just a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate will be easier. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any specific skills to maintain your sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use some script that requires access to a different folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long as we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we could easily recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from working properly. You can activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was without delay as we will keep a couple of daily backups of your account.
