If you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an innovative security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud website hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with just a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you will be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this very easily even if you lack previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels feature add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was without delay because we'll have several daily backup copies of your account.
