In case you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all your websites, since getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can turn it on with only a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to choose which websites will use this option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some website where you'd like to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an extra level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you could recover it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default for the reason that you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you can protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This will be quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
