If you host multiple Internet sites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an innovative security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a different folder and in contrast to what can often happen with some other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed in a single main folder, so keeping the Internet sites separate is far easier. Activating JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to maintain your websites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you want to use some script which needs access to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long since we'll have a couple of daily backups for it all the time, so we can quickly restore it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you will be able to activate JailHost with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It is not activated by default for the reason that you might use an app that requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you can protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. It is simple and easy because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly bring it back using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, meaning that you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future attacks.
