If you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all your sites, since getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
If you host your sites in a web hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be activated for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for different sites never get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is really easy. If any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it easily as we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You could activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately because we'll have a few daily backups of your entire account.
