If you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different 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 your sites, since getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain 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 will significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We have included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you can protect each of your sites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to prevent disturbing any websites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all other websites is really effortless. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we always have multiple daily backup copies for the affected one, therefore we can bring it back to its original state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that require to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You can activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done very easily even when you have no previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the main domain folder, so if a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site gets damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to recover it the way it was without delay since we will have a few daily backup copies of the entire account.
