If you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all of your sites, because gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed in a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate is a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to be able to keep your sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you would like to use some script which needs access to another folder inside your account. In case you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long as we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so that we could quickly recover it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host several Internet sites, you can isolate them from one another and keep them safe. This option must be activated for each and every Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much easier to take care of and secure all of your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site in your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website in a short time because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
