In case you host multiple sites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all your sites, since gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site in 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 does not mean that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with only a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a big difference. You will be able to pick which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you could have some Internet site where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server plans come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name because you may wish to use a certain script which accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you'll be able to activate it easily from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple Internet sites since it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder like it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from each other. If any of your websites gets hacked, we'll be able to promptly restore it thanks to the several daily backup copies which we'll keep and meanwhile your attacker will not be able to do further damage since the access to your other sites will be stopped.
