In case you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised Internet site will do a lot 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 have introduced a top-notch security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

We have included JailHost for all cloud website hosting plans, so you can protect your websites with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really quick. Unlike many other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we'll have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, so that we can restore it to its original state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default since you might use an application that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you'll be able to protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. It is quite easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels store the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just one hacked site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
