If you host multiple Internet sites inside the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all of your sites, since gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a brand new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared web hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect each of your sites with only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to prevent disturbing any sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is very simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, which means that we'll be able to restore it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even when you lack previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was very quickly because we will store several daily backups of the entire account.
