If you host multiple websites inside the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all of your sites, since getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared website hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a major difference. You can select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some website where you want to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, the option will add a further level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it really easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host several websites, you can easily separate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each website and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place multiple websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to control and protect all of your Internet sites. In case that an Internet site within your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected website in a short time because we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
