If you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised site can do lots of damage to all your websites, because getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've created a new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all cloud web hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect your websites with only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't active by default in order to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other websites is really quick. Unlike various other Control Panels where a lot of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, which makes the control and the protection of multiple sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other websites will be safe and we always have several daily backups for the damaged one, so that we'll be able to restore it to its original state within minutes.
