If you host multiple Internet sites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all your websites, because getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
In case you host your sites within a shared hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is provided with all packages and can be activated for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different sites don't get mixed up as it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all other folders is very simple. In case any protected site gets hacked for some reason, we can recover it easily as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups in Hepsia.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not turned on by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts which need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even if you lack previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately because we'll store a couple of daily backup copies of your entire account.
