In case you host multiple sites inside the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, since gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an outstanding security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting plans that we offer and you could activate it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost shall make a major difference. You will be able to choose which sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content since you could have some site where you would like to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your web hosting account. Yet, this feature will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you could recover it easy and fast using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default for the reason that you might use an application that needs access to other folders inside the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you will be able to secure all other sites by separating them from each other. This is simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, numerous other Control Panels store the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so a single hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site can get damaged and even if this happens, we will quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential future intrusions.
