In case you host multiple Internet sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all your sites, as gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the content is not mixed in a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate is rather easy. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to maintain your sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use a script that requires access to another folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we will have several daily backups for it all the time, so that we can promptly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host several websites, you'll be able to separate them from each other so as to keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single website and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than several clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it simpler to take care of and shield all of your Internet sites. In case that a website inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected site very quickly because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
