If you host multiple Internet sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised site will do lots of damage to all of your sites, since getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll significantly limit the damage.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available by default with all the shared web hosting packages that we offer and you can turn it on with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content in the main domain folder, each domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a big difference. You'll be able to choose which sites will use the feature and will be locked depending on your content because you may have some Internet site where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your web hosting account. Nonetheless, the option will add an additional level of security to your Internet sites along with the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could restore it easy and fast using any one of the several daily backups of your entire account that we will generate.
