If you host multiple websites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, because gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other 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'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting plans that we provide and you could enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost can make a big difference. You'll be able to select which Internet sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content since you could have some site where you prefer to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add an additional level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it fast and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't active by default simply because you may use an app that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you can easily protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. It is very easy as 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 one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential attacks.
