Using out-of-date apps or templates and plugins for them, or using very simple passwords always poses a threat to your sites as these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things can get even worse if you have several Internet sites because all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of only one of them. Because of this we have introduced JailHost - an advanced level security option which isolates websites from each other. If a website is compromised, the attacker will be unable to see or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the sites inside the account will be protected and will remain intact. The JailHost option doesn't be a substitute for doing frequent script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your Internet sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one site instead of all of them.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

We have included JailHost for all shared hosting plans, so you will be able to protect all of your sites with only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default so as to avoid disturbing any websites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other websites is really quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the management and the protection of many different websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other sites will be shielded and we will have several daily backups for the affected one, so that we can restore it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to activate JailHost with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel as we've included this feature in all of our semi-dedicated packages. It is not activated by default simply because you might use an app that needs access to other folders within the account and JailHost may cause problems, however you could secure all other websites by isolating them from one another. This is very simple because in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have separate folders. In contrast, a number of other Control Panels save the content of multiple Internet sites in subfolders under a main domain, so just a single hacked website there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one site could possibly get damaged and even if this happens, we can quickly recover it via the multiple daily backups that we will keep, so you can go ahead and update it after that in order to protect it from potential future intrusions.
