Discover how you could use the "JailHost" option within your control panel and how it could protect all your websites.
If you host multiple 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 There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all of your sites, because getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared website hosting packages that we provide and you could enable it with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost can make a major difference. You will be able to pick which websites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, this feature will add a further level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could recover it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
