In case you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all of your websites, as gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the whole Internet 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 inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting packages that we offer and you can turn it on with only a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can select which websites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some site where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, the option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain name because you may need to use a script that accesses several folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it effortlessly from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple websites as it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from one another. If any one of your websites gets hacked, we'll promptly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage because the access to your other websites will be cut off.
