If you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all your websites, since getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a 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 protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can enable it with only a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content as you could have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, the option will add one more level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you could recover it really easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so if you host a couple of Internet sites, you can easily isolate them from each other to keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each and every Internet site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much simpler to take care of and shield all your sites. In case that an Internet site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected Internet site very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
