In case you host multiple websites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, just a single compromised site can do lots of damage to all your websites, as gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the website content isn't mixed in a single main folder, so maintaining your Internet sites separate is rather easy. Enabling JailHost for any site takes just a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to maintain your websites risk-free. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use some script that requires access to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the other Internet sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long since we'll have several daily backups for it at all times, so we could quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It is not 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, however you will be able to secure all other websites by isolating them from each other. It is really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so one single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
