If you host multiple Internet sites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised site can make a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting packages, so you could protect any of your websites with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to prevent interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very simple. Unlike other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, making the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we always have several daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we will be able to restore it to its original state within minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host a couple of Internet sites, you'll be able to separate them from one another in order to keep them safe. This option should be activated for every single Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it easier to manage and shield all of your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected site in no time since we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
