In case you host multiple Internet sites inside the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with known vulnerabilities. This way, a single compromised Internet site can do a lot of damage to all your websites, as getting access to a single script often allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option named JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining Internet sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your websites up to date, but it will significantly limit the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting plans, so you will be able to protect any of your websites with only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature isn't enabled by default in order to avoid interfering with any websites where you may want visitors or administrators to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all other sites is really quick. Unlike other Control Panels where most of the domains have their files in the exact 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 website getting hacked, your other websites will be protected and we'll have several daily backups for the infected one, so that we will be able to restore it to its original state within minutes.
