If you host multiple Internet sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. That way, just a single compromised site can do lots of damage to all your sites, as gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an innovative security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites updated, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your websites within a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for various websites never get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all the other folders is really easy. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it without delay as 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 Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you could activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even if you do not have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was almost immediately as we will keep a couple of daily backup copies of the entire account.
