If you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised site can do lots of damage to all of your sites, because gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a brand new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Website Hosting
We have included JailHost for all website hosting solutions, so you can protect your sites with only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is very simple. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backups for the affected one, so that we'll be able to recover it to its original state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which need to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was without delay as we will keep a few daily backups of your account.
