If you host multiple Internet sites inside the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all your websites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a 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 other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

JailHost is available as a standard with all the cloud web hosting plans that we offer and you could enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a big difference. You can select which websites will use this option and will be locked based on your content because you could have some website where you wish to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders inside your Internet hosting account. Nevertheless, the option will add one more level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with JailHost included by default. The option is not activated automatically when you add a domain name as you may wish to use a script that accesses multiple folders in the account, yet you will be able to activate it without any difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple Internet sites since it keeps them in individual folders and does not keep the files for several Internet sites in the very same folder as it often happens with alternative Control Panels. This enables us to offer you JailHost as all folders can be separated from each other. If any one of your sites is hacked, we will quickly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we'll keep and in the mean time your attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other sites will be blocked.
