If you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, since getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your sites inside a shared website hosting account from our company, you can protect them by using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for each folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different sites don't get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all of the other folders is simple and easy. In case any secured website gets hacked for some reason, we can recover it quickly as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups from Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default as you might use an app which requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you can easily protect all other sites by separating them from each other. It is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential future attacks.
