In case you host multiple sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised site can do lots of damage to all of your sites, since gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole web hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Web Hosting
We’ve included JailHost for all web hosting plans, so you could protect any of your websites with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default so as to prevent interfering with any Internet sites where you might want visitors or admins to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all your other sites is really simple. Unlike alternative Control Panels where many domains have their files in the very 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, the rest of your sites will be shielded and we'll have several daily backups for the affected one, which means that we'll be able to restore it to its initial state within minutes.
