In case you host multiple websites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all your sites, as gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single shared web hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed within just a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is incredibly easier. Enabling JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to keep your sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use a script that needs access to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we will have several daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you may use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you can secure all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
