Using out-of-date apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using very simple passwords is always dangerous for your websites because these things make it significantly easier hack them. Things can get even worse in case you have a couple of Internet sites because all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker takes over just one of them. For this reason we have introduced JailHost - an advanced level security feature that isolates websites from each other. In the event that a website gets compromised, the attacker will be unable to see or gain access to any other content outside the website folder, so all other sites inside the account will be protected and will be intact. The JailHost option won't substitute doing routine script updates or using difficult passwords, but it will minimize the damage to your websites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one site instead of all of them.

JailHost in Shared Website Hosting

We’ve included JailHost for all shared website hosting solutions, so you can protect any of your websites with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't enabled by default in order to prevent interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all your other sites is very easy. Unlike alternative Control Panels where the majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other websites will be safe and we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for the damaged one, so we can restore it to its original state in a matter of minutes.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to activate JailHost with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel since we have included this feature in all semi-dedicated packages. It is not active by default simply because you may use an application which requires access to other folders within the account and JailHost might cause problems, yet you could secure all other sites by isolating them from each other. This is very simple as in Hepsia all domains and subdomains have individual folders. In comparison, a number of other Control Panels keep the content of multiple sites in subfolders under a main domain, so only one hacked Internet site there will mean that all of them will be hacked. With Hepsia, only one Internet site could possibly get damaged and even in such a circumstance, we can quickly restore it using the multiple daily backup copies which we will keep, which means that you can go ahead and update it afterwards so as to protect it from potential attacks.
