In case you host multiple Internet sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. That way, just a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, because gaining access to one script often allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll significantly limit the damage.

JailHost in Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all plans and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different sites do not get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts which require access to folders outside the main site folder and this option can interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all other folders is very simple. If any secured site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it quickly as we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups in Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not active by default for the reason that you might use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you'll be able to protect all other websites by separating them from one another. It is really easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future attacks.
