If you host multiple Internet sites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised website can do lots of damage to all your sites, because getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Website Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the website hosting packages that we offer and you can activate it with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost can make a major difference. You can select which sites will use the option and will be locked in accordance with your content since you may have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add a further level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it really easy using any one of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you'll be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default since we don't want to prevent some scripts which require to access multiple folders in your account from functioning properly. You can enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and you can do this effortlessly even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia takes care of multiple domains - they all have individual folders which can be "locked". In comparison, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is stored in the main domain folder, so when a single Internet site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that a site is damaged despite your efforts, we shall be able to restore it the way it was right away since we will store a couple of daily backup copies of your account.
