If you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised website can do lots of damage to all of your sites, since gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a cloud hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different websites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all other folders is very simple. In case a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to recover it promptly because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an app which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you can secure all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This will be simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential attacks.
