If you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than 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 older scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised site can make a lot of damage to all your sites, as gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed an innovative security option named JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your sites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be activated for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different sites don't get mixed up like it regularly 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 could interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all other folders is very simple. In case any secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it in a short time since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that require to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single website is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly since we will keep a few daily backups of the whole account.
