In case you host multiple sites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all your sites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within 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 doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all cloud website hosting plans, so you will be able to protect your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any Internet sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really simple. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we always have a couple of daily backups for the affected one, therefore we will be able to recover it to its original state in just a few minutes.

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 semi-dedicated packages. It isn't activated by default because you might use an app which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost could potentially cause problems, however you can easily protect all other websites by isolating them from each other. This will be simple and easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In contrast, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so one single hacked Internet site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one site could get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it using the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that so as to protect it from future intrusions.
