In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your websites, as gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites updated, but it will significantly limit the damage.

JailHost in Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the hosting packages that we offer and you could turn it on with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost can make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content since you may have some site where you would like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add an extra level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you will be able to restore it easy and fast using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can activate it with a few clicks. It is not enabled by default because we do not want to prevent some scripts which need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You could activate JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even if you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so when a single site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. If an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was very quickly as we will have a few daily backup copies of the entire account.
