In case you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your websites, since gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We have included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you could protect all of your websites with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to prevent disturbing any sites where you might want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other sites is really quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we always have multiple daily backups for the infected one, therefore we will be able to recover it to its original state in a couple of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may wish to use a script that accesses different folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it easily through your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your websites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple sites because it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the same folder as it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be isolated from one another. In case that any of your sites is hacked, we will promptly restore it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep and in the mean time your attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
