In case you host multiple Internet sites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining 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 sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all web hosting solutions, so you can protect any of your sites with just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to prevent interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really quick. Unlike some other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we will have several daily backup copies for the infected one, therefore we will be able to bring it back to its original state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use some script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you can activate it without any difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple Internet sites because it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from one another. If any of your Internet sites gets hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies which we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
