If you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all your websites, as gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting plans, so you can protect all of your sites with just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default so as to prevent disturbing any websites where you may need visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really effortless. Unlike some other Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we will have a couple of daily backups for the infected one, which means that we will be able to restore it to its initial state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This feature is not enabled automatically when you add a domain because you may need to use a certain script which accesses several folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for people who have multiple websites as it keeps them in individual folders and doesn't keep the files for several websites in the very same folder as it often happens with many other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all of the folders can be separated from each other. If any of your Internet sites is hacked, we will be able to almost instantly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage because the access to your other sites will be blocked.
