If you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised website will do lots of damage to all of your websites, because getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single web hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and contrary to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up in just a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is quite easy. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills in order to maintain your websites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use a script which requires accessibility to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long as we will have several daily backups for it all of the time, so we can easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain name since you may need to use a specific script which accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you can activate it without difficulty through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites as it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the same folder as it often happens with various other Control Panels. This allows us to offer you JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from one another. If any one of your Internet sites is hacked, we will be able to quickly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be blocked.
