In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the cloud website hosting plans that we offer and you could enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to pick which websites will use the option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, this feature will add a further level of security to your websites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies 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 can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not enabled by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You will be able to enable JailHost for all other Internet sites 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 in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was almost immediately as we will keep several daily backups of the whole account.
