If you host multiple websites inside the same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your sites, because getting access to one script usually allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the cloud web hosting packages that we offer and you can activate it with only a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a significant difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use this option and will be locked depending on your content because you could have some site where you wish to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you could recover it quick and easy using any of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting packages come with JailHost included by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain name as you may wish to use some script which accesses different folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it with ease from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other sites with just a few clicks. Hepsia is much better to use when you have multiple Internet sites as 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 the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any one of your websites gets hacked, we'll promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and meanwhile the attacker will not be able to do further damage as the access to your other websites will be cut off.
