If you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, one single compromised Internet site can do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a brand new security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock an Internet site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites updated, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
JailHost is available by default with all the hosting plans that we offer and you could enable it with just a single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content within the main domain folder, every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, therefore using JailHost can make a big difference. You can choose which sites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content since you may have some site where you'd like to allow users or administrators to access other folders in your hosting account. Yet, this option will add an additional level of security to your websites together with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your Internet sites is hacked, you will be able to restore it fast and easy using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
