In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an innovative security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting packages, so you could protect all of your sites with only a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to prevent disturbing any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we will have several daily backups for the damaged one, so that we can restore it to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host several different sites, you can isolate them from each other so as to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each Internet site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to maintain and secure your sites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected website in a short time since we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
