In case you host multiple sites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Hosting

In case you host your websites in a hosting account from our company, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for many different websites don't get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but protecting all other folders is really easy. In case a protected site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it in a short time as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host several different sites, you'll be able to isolate them from one another to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for each and every website and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to control and secure your websites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected Internet site in a short time because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
