If you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your sites, since gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up within a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate will be a lot easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you won't need any special skills to maintain your Internet sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you'd like to use some script which requires accessibility to a different folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the remaining Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long because we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so that we can promptly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default simply because you may use an application that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you will be able to secure all other Internet sites by separating them from each other. It is quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
