In case you host multiple Internet sites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud hosting packages, so you can protect each of your sites with just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default in order to prevent disturbing any websites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is very easy. Unlike some other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be shielded and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we will be able to bring it back to its original state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, so in case you host several different Internet sites, you can separate them from one another and keep them safe. This option must be activated for every single site and is not enabled by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and secure your sites. In case that an Internet site in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected site in a short time because we will have multiple backups of your content.
