In case you host multiple Internet sites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised site can make a lot of damage to all your sites, because getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting packages, so you could protect each of your websites with just a few clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other websites will be shielded and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, which means that we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default simply because you might use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you can secure all other sites by separating them from one another. This is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from future intrusions.
