In case you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, because gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a hosting account from our firm, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all plans and can be activated for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for various Internet sites never get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option could interfere with their proper operation, but securing all of the other folders is very easy. In case any protected site gets hacked for some reason, we can recover it easily because we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't active by default for the reason that you might use an app which requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you can easily secure all other websites by separating them from one another. This will be quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from potential intrusions.
