In case you host multiple sites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised website will do lots of damage to all your websites, as getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, 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 will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting solutions, so you can protect any of your sites with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default to avoid disturbing any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very effortless. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we always have multiple daily backups for the infected one, so we'll be able to bring it back to its original state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts which need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the primary domain folder, so when a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly since we'll keep a couple of daily backups of the entire account.
