If you host multiple websites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised site can do lots of damage to all of your sites, since getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you can activate it with just a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You will be able to select which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content as you may have some website where you would like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, this option will add one more level of security to your sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it really easy using any of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so in case you host a couple of Internet sites, you can separate them from each other to keep them safe. The option must be activated for every single Internet site and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple websites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it much easier to control and secure all of your sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the damaged Internet site before you know it since we will have multiple backups of your content.
