In case you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your sites, as getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an innovative security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites 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 Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content since you may have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to recover it easy and fast using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default because you might use an application which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you can easily secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. It is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
