In case you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all of your sites, because gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from 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 Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting plans, so you can protect each of your sites with only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default to prevent interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really easy. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, which means that we will be able to bring it back to its initial state within a few minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host multiple sites, you will be able to separate them from each other to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for every single Internet site and is not turned on by default, in order 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 a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to take care of and shield your websites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected website in a short time because we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
