In case you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all your websites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We have included JailHost for all shared hosting plans, so you can protect your websites with just a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other websites is very effortless. Unlike some other Control Panels where many domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we'll have multiple daily backups for the damaged one, which means that we will be able to restore it to its initial state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not activated by default since we do not want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this easily even when you have no previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia maintains multiple domains - they all have separate folders that could be "locked". In contrast, other widespread Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the primary domain folder, so in case a single website is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which is not the case with Hepsia. In case a site is damaged regardless of your efforts, we'll be able to restore it the way it was without delay as we will store a couple of daily backup copies of your account.
