If you host multiple sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised website will do lots of damage to all of your websites, as getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will significantly limit the damage.

JailHost in Website Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a website hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be activated for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different Internet sites don't get mixed up as it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but shielding all other folders is very easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it promptly because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default for the reason that you might use an app which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you could secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This will be a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential intrusions.
