If you host multiple websites inside the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised website will do lots of damage to all your sites, because gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature 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 protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Cloud Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every cloud hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our solutions has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed inside a single main folder, so keeping the sites separate is a lot easier. Allowing JailHost for any site takes just a couple of clicks, so even when you do not have much experience, you will not need any specific skills to maintain your sites safe. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use some script that needs accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the remaining websites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for too long as we will have several daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we can quickly recover it.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host a couple of websites, you will be able to isolate them from each other and keep them safe. This feature should be activated for every single website and is not active by default, so as to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Activating it for all other domains will take no more than a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several Internet sites under the primary domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much simpler to control and shield all of your websites. In case that an Internet site inside your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we'll also be able to recover the affected site before you know it because we will have multiple backup copies of your content.
