In case you host multiple sites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised site will do lots of damage to all your websites, because getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all 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 updated, but it'll significantly limit the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with just a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost can make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which websites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some website where you prefer to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add one more level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it fast and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default for the reason that you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you can protect all other websites by separating them from each other. This is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
