In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites 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 sites updated, but it'll significantly limit the damage.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared website hosting plans that we provide and you could turn it on with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some website where you'd like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Yet, this option will add a further level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default since you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you can easily protect all other websites by separating them from each other. This is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
