In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a site inside 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 does not mean that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the website hosting packages that we offer and you can turn it on with just a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost can make a big difference. You can choose which websites will use the feature and will be locked based on your content as you could have some site where you want to allow users or admins to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Yet, the option will add a further level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to restore it really easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server plans, so in case you host several websites, you can isolate them from each other to keep them safe. The option should be activated for every single website and is not turned on by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, which makes it easier to manage and protect your Internet sites. In case that a website within your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected website before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your content.
