If you host multiple sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, because gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud hosting packages that we offer and you could turn it on with just a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to pick which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content because you could have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an extra level of security to your sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could restore it really easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so in case you host a couple of websites, you can separate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to manage and secure all your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the damaged Internet site in a short time because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
