If you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared web hosting packages that we offer and you could turn it on with just a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a big difference. You can select which sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content since you could have some site where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to recover it quick and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was right away since we will have a couple of daily backups of your entire account.
