In case you host multiple sites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised website will do lots of damage to all your websites, because getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites within a shared hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all packages and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for various sites never get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but shielding all the other folders is simple and easy. If a protected website gets hacked for some reason, we can recover it quickly since 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 Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, but you'll be able to secure all other sites by separating them from one another. This is a piece of cake because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
