If you host multiple Internet sites inside the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all of your websites, since gaining access to one script generally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a brand new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly minimize the damage.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host your sites within a shared web hosting account from our company, you will be able to protect them using the JailHost feature with just a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is provided with all packages and can be enabled for any folder as the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have individual folders, so that files for different websites never get mixed up as it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts that need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option could interfere with their correct operation, but shielding all of the other folders is really easy. If any secured site gets hacked for some reason, we can restore it easily because we will have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups through Hepsia.
