If you host multiple sites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised site can make a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all hosting solutions, so you can protect all of your sites with only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default 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 websites is really quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we will have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, so that we can recover it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case 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 have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default for the reason that you might use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you'll be able to protect all other sites by separating them from each other. This will be simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
