If you host multiple sites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all your websites, since gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could turn it on with only a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content because you may have some site where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you could restore it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost included by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain name as you may need to use some script which accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it effortlessly through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple Internet sites since it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from one another. If any one of your sites gets hacked, we will be able to promptly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
