If you host multiple websites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all of your websites, as getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a top-notch security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with only a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to 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, therefore using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can choose which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, this feature will add one more level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may want to use a script which accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it easily via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple websites as it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any of your websites is hacked, we'll promptly restore it thanks to the several daily backups that we will keep and in the mean time the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be cut off.
