If you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting solutions, so you can protect each of your sites with just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default to prevent interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other sites is very quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, which means that we will be able to bring it back to its original state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost integrated by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name since you may wish to use some script that accesses several folders in the account, yet you can activate it effortlessly via your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with various other Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be separated from one another. In case that any of your Internet sites is hacked, we will be able to promptly restore it using the several daily backups which we will keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be blocked.
