If you host multiple sites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all of your sites, since gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting plans, so you will be able to protect all of your websites with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any websites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other Internet sites is very simple. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their very own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your Internet sites will be shielded and we will have multiple daily backup copies for the damaged one, therefore we will be able to restore it to its original state in a couple of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can start JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel because we've included this option in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default since you might use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, but you can protect all other Internet sites by isolating them from each other. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, a lot of other Control Panels save the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so just a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we will quickly bring it back thanks to the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
