If you host multiple Internet sites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, because gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate will be far easier. Allowing JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills in order to maintain your sites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use some script which needs access to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long because we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so we could promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option 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 could potentially cause problems, but you could secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This will be simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential attacks.
