If you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised site will do lots of damage to all your sites, because gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an innovative security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting packages, so you will be able to protect your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is really quick. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we will be able to bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You will be able to activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was without delay as we will have several daily backups of the whole account.
