In case you host multiple websites in the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised site can make lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites updated, but it'll greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Shared Hosting
You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared hosting plan that we provide and protect your Internet sites against attacks quick and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a separate folder and in contrast to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the website content is not mixed in a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate is far easier. Enabling JailHost for any Internet site takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to maintain your websites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you intend to use some script which needs access to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the Internet sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain damaged for long since we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all of the time, so that we can promptly recover it.
