If you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all of your websites, since getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed an innovative security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud website hosting packages that we provide and you can turn it on with only a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some website where you prefer to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add an extra level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could recover it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so if you host multiple sites, you can easily separate them from each other to keep them safe. This option must be activated for every single Internet site and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much simpler to control and secure all of your websites. In case that a site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the damaged Internet site in no time as we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
