In case you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised site can make lots of damage to all of your sites, since gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option known as JailHost. Once activated, 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 suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will greatly limit the damage.

JailHost in Website Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting account from our firm, you will be able to protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be activated for every folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different sites do not get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is really easy. If any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it easily since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, so in case you host a couple of websites, you will be able to isolate them from one another in order to keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single website and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than several mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much simpler to take care of and secure all of your Internet sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected Internet site before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
