If you host multiple sites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised website can make lots of damage to all of your sites, because gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Web Hosting

In case you host your websites inside a web hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them by using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is available with all plans and can be enabled for every folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so that files for many different sites don't get mixed up as it quite often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option can interfere with their correct operation, but securing all the other folders is simple and easy. In case any protected Internet site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover 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 using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done easily even if you do not have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If a site gets damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was without delay as we'll keep several daily backups of your account.
