If you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, because getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting solutions, so you could protect your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default to prevent disturbing any sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really simple. Unlike alternative Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we'll have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so we'll be able to restore it to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name since you may wish to use a certain script which accesses different folders in the account, but you can activate it without difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder as it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all folders can be isolated from each other. If any one of your Internet sites gets hacked, we'll quickly restore it thanks to the several daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
