In case you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed up in just a single main folder, so keeping the websites separate is much simpler. Allowing JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills to maintain your Internet sites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script which requires access to another folder in your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long since we will have a couple of daily backups for it all the time, so we can quickly recover it.

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 in your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default because you might use an application that needs accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, yet you could secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from one another. It is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
