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

JailHost in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a web hosting account from our company, you could protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all plans and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for various sites never get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts that need access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their proper functioning, but shielding all of the other folders is very easy. In case a protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we will be able to restore it easily since we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups in Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host several sites, you can isolate them from each other and keep them safe. The option should be activated for each website and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a couple of clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple websites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and shield your websites. In case that an Internet site inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected website in a short time because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
