If you host multiple sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your websites, because getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an innovative security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud web hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content as you could have some site where you wish to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add one more level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it quick and easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default simply because you may use an app that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you will be able to protect all other websites by separating them from each other. It is quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet 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 Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future attacks.
