If you host multiple websites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, just a single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, since getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you can protect any of your sites with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the infected one, so we will be able to restore it to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so in case you host several different sites, you can easily separate them from one another and keep them safe. This feature should be activated for every single website and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much easier to control and secure your websites. In case that a site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged site very quickly since we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
