In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded 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 Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you'll be able to protect your sites with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other websites is very simple. Unlike some other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we'll have several daily backup copies for the damaged one, so that we will be able to restore it to its initial state in just a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default as you might use an app that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you will be able to secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from one another. This will be really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential intrusions.
