If you host multiple Internet sites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all your sites, since gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a top-notch security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect your sites with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really easy. Unlike some other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we'll have several daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we can bring it back to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the primary domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was very quickly since we'll keep a few daily backup copies of your account.
