If you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised Internet site can make lots of damage to all your sites, as gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting packages that we provide and you could enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a big difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use this option and will be locked in accordance with your content since you could have some Internet site where you prefer to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, the option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could restore it easy and fast using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default as you may use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you could protect all other sites by isolating them from each other. It is simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just 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 using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future intrusions.
