If you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks fast 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 can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up inside a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate is incredibly easier. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to maintain your Internet sites secure. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use some script that needs accessibility to a different folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long since we will have a couple of daily backups for it all the time, so we can quickly restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default for the reason that you may use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you'll be able to secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential intrusions.
