In case you host multiple Internet sites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised site can make lots of damage to all your sites, as gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting packages, so you could protect any of your websites with only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to prevent disturbing any sites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is really effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be safe and we will have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, which means that we'll be able to recover it to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host a couple of websites, you can separate them from each other and keep them safe. The option should be activated for each and every website and is not enabled by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much simpler to maintain and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site very quickly because we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
