If you host multiple sites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's 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 weaknesses. That way, a single compromised site can make a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an innovative security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site within 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 does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it will significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

We have included JailHost for all shared website hosting solutions, so you could protect your sites with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to prevent interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other websites is very simple. Unlike various other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the management and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we always have several daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we can restore it to its original state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

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