In case you host multiple Internet sites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're various reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, as getting access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced an outstanding security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a website inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will significantly reduce the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting plans, so you can protect all of your Internet sites with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The option 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 other Internet sites is very quick. Unlike other Control Panels where the vast majority of domains have their files in the same main folder, all domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, making the control and the protection of multiple websites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, your other Internet sites will be safe and we will have several daily backup copies for the affected one, therefore we will be able to recover it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
