If you host multiple sites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised site can make lots of damage to all your sites, as gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your websites within a cloud website hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various sites never get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all the other folders is really easy. If a secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it without delay since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default as you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you can secure all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future intrusions.
