In case you host multiple sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites within a cloud hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different websites do not get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. In case any secured Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it very quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default because you may use an application that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you can secure all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. This will be super easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential attacks.
