If you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. In this way, a single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all of your websites, because gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the entire web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Website Hosting
JailHost is available as standard with all the shared website hosting plans that we provide and you can turn it on with just a click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, so using JailHost can make a significant difference. You will be able to select which Internet sites will use the option and will be locked based on your content since you may have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders inside your website hosting account. Nevertheless, this feature will add a further level of security to your websites in addition to the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites gets hacked, you will be able to recover it fast and easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.
