In case you host multiple sites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all of your websites, as gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a top-notch security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed up inside a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate is rather easy. Activating JailHost for any Internet site takes only a few clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you won't need any specific skills in order to maintain your websites protected. The option is not active by default in case that you wish to use some script which needs access to a different folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for long since we will have a couple of daily backups for it all the time, so that we could easily restore it.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting solutions come with JailHost provided by default. This option is not enabled automatically when you add a domain as you may want to use a certain script that accesses multiple folders in the account, but you will be able to activate it without difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect the rest of your sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use for those who have multiple sites since it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several sites in the same folder like it often happens with other Control Panels. This enables us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be isolated from each other. In case that any of your websites gets hacked, we will promptly restore it thanks to the multiple daily backups which we will keep and meanwhile your attacker won't be able to do further damage since the access to your other websites will be cut off.
