If you host multiple sites inside the same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your websites, since gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared hosting solutions, so you will be able to protect all of your sites with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not active by default in order to prevent disturbing any Internet sites 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 Internet sites is very easy. Unlike alternative Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we will have several daily backup copies for the infected one, so we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not activated by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts that may need to gain access to multiple folders in your account from working properly. You can activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even when you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia manages multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so when a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, that isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was in no time as we will keep a couple of daily backups of the entire account.
