If you host multiple Internet sites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all of your websites, since getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites within a cloud hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all plans and can be enabled for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different sites never get mixed up as it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but protecting all other folders is very easy. If a protected site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can recover it easily because we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default simply because you may use an application which requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you can secure all other websites by separating them from one another. It is very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential intrusions.
