In case you host multiple websites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all your websites, as getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the web hosting packages that we offer and you could turn it on with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a big difference. You can pick which sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your hosting account. Yet, the option will add an extra level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you'll be able to activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done very easily even if you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the primary domain folder, so when a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site gets damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was almost instantly because we will store several daily backup copies of your entire account.
