In case you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised website can make a lot of damage to all of your sites, because getting access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed an innovative security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining websites 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 Internet sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect your sites with just a few clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The option isn't active by default in order to avoid disturbing any websites where you might want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is really quick. Unlike other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the very same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of many different sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a website getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we will have a couple of daily backup copies for the affected one, which means that we will be able to bring it back to its original state in a matter of minutes.
