If you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all your websites, since gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from 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 Shared Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect your websites with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default so as to prevent interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other websites is really simple. Unlike some other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be protected and we always have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, so we can restore it to its initial state within minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so if you host several Internet sites, you'll be able to isolate them from each other in order to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each Internet site and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it easier to control and shield your websites. In case that a site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to restore the affected website before you know it as we will have multiple backups of your content.
