If you host multiple Internet sites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all your sites, because gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the cloud web hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with only a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost shall make a big difference. You will be able to choose which websites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it quick and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default simply because you may use an application that needs accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, yet you'll be able to protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. It is a piece of cake as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
