In case you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all of your sites, since getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We have included JailHost for all hosting packages, so you could protect your websites with just a couple of clicks inside the 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 your other sites is really effortless. Unlike alternative Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we always have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we'll be able to recover it to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default as you may use an application that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, yet you will be able to secure all other websites by separating them from one another. It is a piece of cake because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential attacks.
