In case you host multiple sites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, just a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your sites, because gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for various sites never get mixed up like it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but securing all other folders is very easy. If any protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you can easily protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from potential future attacks.
