If you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all your sites, as gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be enabled for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for different sites don't get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all other folders is simple and easy. In case any protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we will be able to recover it without delay since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans and you'll be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not enabled by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even if you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels feature add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was right away since we'll have several daily backups of your account.
