In case you host multiple websites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with well-known vulnerabilities. That way, one single compromised Internet site will do a lot of damage to all your sites, because getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed a new security option known as JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting plans, so you'll be able to protect any of your websites with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not active by default to avoid interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders inside your account, but activating it for all the other sites is very quick. Unlike some other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have their own folders, making the management and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your sites will be safe and we always have a couple of daily backup copies for the affected one, which means that we'll be able to bring it back to its initial state within a few minutes.
