In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all your websites, because gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Web Hosting

In case you host your sites inside a web hosting account from our company, you could protect them using the JailHost feature with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for each folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different Internet sites never get mixed up as it often happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all the other folders is very simple. If a protected Internet site gets hacked for whatever reason, we can restore it quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default because you might use an app that requires accessibility to other folders within the account and JailHost could cause problems, however you can protect all other Internet sites by separating them from one another. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels store the content of multiple websites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it via the multiple daily backups which we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
