In case you host multiple Internet sites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised website can make lots of damage to all your websites, as gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud web hosting packages that we provide and you could activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default because you might use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you can secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from one another. It is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future attacks.
