If you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, since gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites 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 sites updated, but it will greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so maintaining your sites separate will be easier. Enabling JailHost for any site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to keep your sites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use a script which requires access to an additional folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long since we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it at all times, so we can promptly restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host a couple of sites, you can isolate them from one another in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each and every Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to control and secure all of your websites. In case that an Internet site in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected website very quickly because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
