If you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all your websites, because gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our solutions has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed in a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate is rather easy. Activating JailHost for any site takes only a couple of clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to keep your sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use a script that needs access to another folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for too long since we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it at all times, so we could promptly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You can activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even if you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was right away as we'll store a couple of daily backup copies of your entire account.
