In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, just a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all of your sites, as getting access to one script generally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud hosting plans that we provide and you could activate it with just a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, which means that using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You can pick which websites will use this feature and will be locked depending on your content as you could have some Internet site where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add one more level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could restore it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default as you might use an app that requires access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, yet you can secure all other sites by isolating them from one another. This will be quite easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future intrusions.
