In case you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised site can do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud web hosting plans that we offer and you can turn it on with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a major difference. You'll be able to pick which sites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some website where you'd like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add an extra level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could recover it fast and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host multiple websites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other to keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much easier to take care of and secure your websites. In case that an Internet site in your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the affected website before you know it since we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
