If you host multiple Internet sites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all your sites, since getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a web hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is provided with all packages and can be activated for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various Internet sites never get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the main site folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all of the other folders is very simple. In case a protected site gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it promptly because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so in case you host several different sites, you can isolate them from one another so as to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each and every website and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much simpler to take care of and secure all of your sites. In case that an Internet site within your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the damaged Internet site in a short time since we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
