If you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all your sites, because getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting packages that we offer and you can turn it on with only a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some website where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could restore it quick and easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default as you may use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, yet you will be able to secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. This is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential intrusions.
