If you host multiple sites in the same account and one of them is hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known vulnerabilities. That way, a single compromised website will do a lot of damage to all your Internet sites, as gaining access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a brand new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this option will literally lock a site inside its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they will be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't imply that you should not keep your Internet sites up to date, but it will greatly minimize the damage.
JailHost in Cloud Hosting
We have included JailHost for all cloud hosting packages, so you could protect your sites with only a few clicks in the Hepsia Control Panel. The feature is not enabled by default to prevent interfering with any sites where you might want visitors or administrators to be able to access content from other folders in your account, but activating it for all the other Internet sites is very effortless. Unlike other Control Panels where most of the 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 Internet sites easier. In the unfortunate scenario of a site getting hacked, the rest of your websites will be protected and we'll have several daily backups for the affected one, therefore we can recover it to its initial state in a matter of minutes.
