In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them gets 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 There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised site can make lots of damage to all of your sites, as gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single website hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up within a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is rather easy. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to keep your sites safe. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use a script which needs access to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long since we will have several daily backup copies for it at all times, so that we could promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host several sites, you can separate them from each other and keep them safe. This option must be activated for every single website and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it simpler to manage and protect your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to recover the affected site before you know it since we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
