In case you host multiple sites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all your websites, since gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you can activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep 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 major difference. You can select which Internet sites will use this feature and will be locked in accordance with your content since you may have some Internet site where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an extra level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you could restore it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost provided by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain as you may need to use a certain script which accesses multiple folders in the account, but you can activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites as it keeps them in separate folders and doesn't keep the files for several sites in the very same folder as it often happens with many other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from one another. If any one of your Internet sites is hacked, we'll be able to almost instantly restore it thanks to the several daily backup copies that we will keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be cut off.
