If you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, just a single compromised site can make lots of damage to all your sites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to 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 Web Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every web hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our plans has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate will be rather easy. Activating JailHost for any site takes just a few clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you will not need any specific skills in order to keep your websites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use a script that needs accessibility to a different folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for too long because we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it at all times, so we can quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not enabled by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If a site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was almost instantly because we will have a couple of daily backups of the whole account.
