In case you host multiple sites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Website Hosting

If you host your websites within a website hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all plans and can be activated for any folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so files for many different Internet sites do not get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all of the other folders is really easy. In case any secured website gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it in a short time since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server plans, so if you host several websites, you can easily isolate them from each other to keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single Internet site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place several sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it much easier to maintain and shield all of your sites. In case that a site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site in no time as we will have multiple backup copies of your entire content.
