If you host multiple sites within the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, just a single compromised site can do a lot of damage to all of your websites, because getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will significantly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
JailHost is available as a standard with all the shared hosting plans that we offer and you could enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost shall make a significant difference. You can choose which websites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some website where you'd like to allow users or admins to be able to access other folders in your Internet hosting account. Nonetheless, this feature will add an additional level of security to your websites in addition to 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 of the multiple daily backup copies of your entire account which we'll generate.
