If you host multiple sites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get 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 There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites 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 up to date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Web Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all web hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect your websites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default so as to prevent interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other Internet sites is really effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we always have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, which means that we can recover it to its initial state within minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default simply because you may use an app which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you could secure all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential intrusions.
