In case you host multiple sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all your websites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every web hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed within just a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate will be much easier. Activating JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even when you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills in order to maintain your websites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use a script which requires access to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long because we will have several daily backups for it at all times, so we could quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default because you might use an application that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you could protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from one another. This will be very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential future attacks.
