In case you host multiple Internet sites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites updated, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting packages that we provide and you could turn it on with only a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a major difference. You'll be able to choose which websites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you may have some website where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, the option will add an additional level of security to your websites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it really easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default simply because you might use an app that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can easily secure all other websites by separating them from each other. It is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential attacks.
