In case you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised website will do lots of damage to all of your websites, since getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your sites inside a cloud hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all plans and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various Internet sites don't get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but shielding all other folders is very easy. In case any secured site gets hacked for some reason, we can recover it easily because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not enabled by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even when you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly since we'll store a few daily backups of your entire account.
