In case you host multiple websites inside the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so keeping the sites separate will be rather easy. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to keep your websites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use some script which needs accessibility to another folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long as we will have several daily backups for it all of the time, so that we could easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default as you may use an app that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you could protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. It is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future intrusions.
