If you host multiple sites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your sites, since gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly limit the damage.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your websites within a shared web hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be activated for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so that files for various websites never get mixed up like it often happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default as you may use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary website folder and this option may interfere with their correct functioning, but securing all other folders is really easy. In case any protected website gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it without delay since we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups using Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you'll be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default because we don't want to prevent some scripts that may need to access multiple folders in your account from working properly. You could enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done quickly even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so when a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In case an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was without delay since we'll keep a few daily backup copies of your entire account.
