Using out-of-date apps or templates and plugins for them, or using simple passwords is always a risk for your websites as these things make it easier hack them. Things can get worse when you have multiple sites since all of them will be vulnerable if an attacker takes over just one of them. For this reason we have developed JailHost - an advanced security feature which isolates Internet sites from each other. In case an Internet site gets compromised, the attacker will be unable to see or access any other content outside the website folder, so all the rest of the websites part of the account will be protected and will remain intact. Using the JailHost option cannot replace doing regular script updates or using complex passwords, but it'll minimize the damage to your sites significantly, so you will have to fix only one website and not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting packages that we provide and you can enable it with just a single mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the primary domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You can select which sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content as you may have some site where you want to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add one more level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites gets hacked, you could recover it quick and easy using any one of the multiple daily backups of your entire account that we'll generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost comes with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you will be able to activate it with several clicks. It is not turned on by default as we do not want to prevent some scripts that need to access multiple folders in the account from working properly. You'll be able to activate JailHost for all other Internet sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done effortlessly even if you don't have any previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have separate folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other popular Control Panels have add-on domains and their content is kept in the primary domain folder, so in case a single Internet site is hacked, the whole account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. If a site is damaged despite your efforts, we will be able to restore it the way it was in no time as we will store a couple of daily backups of your account.
