In case you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is 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 There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, one single compromised website will do lots of damage to all of your websites, because getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site within 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 up to date, but it will greatly limit the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you can turn it on with only a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost will make a major difference. You can choose which sites will use this option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some Internet site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you could recover it really easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to start JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default since you might use an application that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, yet you can easily secure all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This will be very easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that to protect it from potential intrusions.
