If you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all of your sites, since gaining access to a single script often allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've developed an outstanding security option named JailHost. Once enabled, this feature will literally lock an Internet site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be protected from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
If you host your sites in a cloud hosting account from our company, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. This feature is available with all packages and can be enabled for each folder since the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for different websites do not get mixed up as it quite often 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 the other folders is very simple. In case a protected site gets hacked for some reason, we'll be able to recover it very quickly since we will have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to view the available backups using Hepsia.
