If you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared web hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up in just a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate will be rather easy. Activating JailHost for any site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to maintain your Internet sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use a script which needs accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for too long as we'll have a couple of daily backups for it at all times, so that we can quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts which need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is stored in the primary domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately as we will store several daily backups of your account.
