If you host multiple Internet sites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your sites, since getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every website hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate is quite easy. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to keep your Internet sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script which requires access to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for too long as we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it at all times, so we can easily recover 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 because we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default because you may use an app that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you could secure all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential attacks.
