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 afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, because gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it'll greatly limit the damage.

JailHost in Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you could protect your Internet sites with only a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default to prevent disturbing any Internet sites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other websites is very effortless. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be protected and we always have several daily backups for the damaged one, therefore we will be able to restore it to its original state in just a few minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can activate JailHost with several clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated plans. It isn't activated by default because you may use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, however you could protect all other websites by separating them from each other. This is very easy as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In comparison, many other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a primary domain, so only one hacked site there means that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, just one website can get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly recover it thanks to the multiple daily backup copies that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it afterwards to protect it from future attacks.
