If you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an innovative security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks quick and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is far easier. Allowing JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to keep your websites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use a script which needs accessibility to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we will have a couple of 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 can start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an application that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you could protect all other websites by isolating them from one another. It is simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from future intrusions.
