If you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, just a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all of your websites, since gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an innovative security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all shared web hosting solutions, so you can protect your sites with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any websites where you may need 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 simple. Unlike many other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be shielded and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the affected one, so that we can restore it to its initial state within minutes.
