In case you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your sites, since getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
In case you host your sites in a hosting account from our firm, you could protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for different Internet sites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all of the other folders is really easy. If a protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to restore it quickly because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even when you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so when a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately since we'll store a couple of daily backups of your entire account.
