In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your websites, because getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared web hosting plans that we provide and you can turn it on with just a single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a significant difference. You will be able to choose which sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content because you could have some site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it really easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default simply because you might use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you can protect all other websites by isolating them from one another. It is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future attacks.
