If you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised website will do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, because getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
If you host your websites in a shared hosting account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all packages and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for many different Internet sites do not get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their proper operation, but securing all the other folders is very easy. In case a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it in a short time because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so if you host several Internet sites, you can easily separate them from one another to keep them safe. The option must be activated for each site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much easier to control and protect all your Internet sites. In case that a site within your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected Internet site in a short time because we will have multiple backups of your content.
