If you host multiple Internet sites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, a single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all of your websites, since gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've created an innovative security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other 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 sites up to date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared hosting plans, so you will be able to protect each of your websites with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default to prevent interfering with any sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really easy. Unlike alternative Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, which makes the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we will have a couple of daily backups for the damaged one, so that we'll be able to recover it to its original state in a couple of minutes.
