If you host multiple sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all your sites, since getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites 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 sites updated, but it will greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting plans, so you will be able to protect all of your sites with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very effortless. Unlike some other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we'll have multiple daily backups for the affected one, therefore we'll be able to restore it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default simply because you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you can easily secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
