Using outdated apps or templates and plug-ins for them, or using simple passwords is always dangerous for your websites because these things make it much easier to hack them. Things can get even worse if you have multiple websites as all of them will be vulnerable when an attacker gets control of just one of them. This is the reason why we've introduced JailHost - an advanced security feature that isolates websites from each other. In the event that a website gets compromised, the attacker will not be able to see or access any other content outside the site folder, so all other sites in the account will be protected and will be intact. Using the JailHost option does not be a substitute for doing regular script updates or using proper passwords, but it will minimize any damage to your websites significantly, so you'll have to fix only one Internet site and not all of them.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the shared hosting plans that we provide and you could enable it with only a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a major difference. You will be able to pick which websites will use the option and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some site where you want to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites together with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites is hacked, you'll be able to recover it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we will generate.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
JailHost is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages, so if you host several different websites, you will be able to separate them from one another so as to keep them safe. The option has to be activated for every single Internet site and is not turned on by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every single domain or subdomain has its own folder, that makes it much simpler to maintain and secure all your Internet sites. In case that a site within your account gets hacked, not only will your other sites remain untouched, but we can also restore the affected website very quickly since we will have multiple backup copies of your whole content.
