In case you host multiple sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised site will do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
In case you host your websites within a web hosting
account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be enabled for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for various sites do not get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but securing all the other folders is very simple. In case any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to restore it promptly as we will 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
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an application that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you'll be able to protect all other sites by separating them from one another. It is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential attacks.
