If you host multiple sites within the same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised Internet site will do lots 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've introduced a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up to date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the shared website hosting packages that we provide and you can enable it with only a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content inside the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You can select which Internet sites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content as you could 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 additional level of security to your websites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you'll be able to restore it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you will be able to activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not turned on by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You will be able to activate JailHost for all other websites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this quickly even if you don't have any previous experience. What enables us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have separate folders that can be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was in no time because we will have a couple of daily backup copies of your account.
