In case you host multiple sites inside the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it's very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known vulnerabilities. That way, just a single compromised website will do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, because getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Shared Web Hosting
We have included JailHost for all shared web hosting plans, so you will be able to protect all of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is not enabled by default so as to avoid interfering with any sites where you may need visitors or admins to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is really simple. Unlike alternative Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of an Internet site getting hacked, your other sites will be safe and we'll have a couple of daily backups for the infected one, so that we'll be able to bring it back to its original state in a matter of minutes.
