In case you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a top-notch security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a major difference. You will be able to pick which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content as you may have some Internet site where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add one more level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans, so in case you host multiple Internet sites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other and keep them safe. The option must be activated for each website and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it simpler to control and shield your Internet sites. In case that a website in your account gets hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
