If you host multiple websites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to one script often allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will greatly limit the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your websites within a cloud hosting account from our firm, you can protect them by using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for various sites don't get mixed up like it usually happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which require access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their proper operation, but securing all the other folders is really easy. If any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we have included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default since you may use an application that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, but you'll be able to protect all other websites by separating them from one another. It is super easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, a lot of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site can get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
