In case you host multiple websites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. That way, just a single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all your websites, as gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting packages, so you could protect all of your sites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default in order to avoid disturbing any Internet sites where you might want 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 simple. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we will have several daily backup copies for the infected one, which means that we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state within minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can start JailHost with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default for the reason that you may use an app that requires accessibility to other folders inside the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can easily secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This is really easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one Internet site can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from future attacks.
