If you host multiple sites inside the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, just a single compromised site can make lots of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an innovative 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 Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the website hosting plans that we offer and you could turn it on with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content since you may have some website where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add a further level of security to your sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to recover it really easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions, so if you host several different Internet sites, you can easily isolate them from one another to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for each Internet site and is not enabled by default, to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place different sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to manage and secure your sites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected site in a short time because we will have multiple backups of your entire content.
