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 after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all your Internet sites, since getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting packages, so you'll be able to protect your sites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really easy. Unlike other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be protected and we will have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we can bring it back to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was very quickly since we'll store a couple of daily backup copies of your entire account.
