In case you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised website can do lots of damage to all of your websites, as gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud hosting packages that we offer and you can enable it with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, which means that using JailHost can make a major difference. You'll be able to select which sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some website where you wish to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, the option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default for the reason that you might use an app which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you can secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. This is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, 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 after that to protect it from potential attacks.
