In case you host multiple websites in the same account and one of them gets hacked, it's quite possible that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're several reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using really weak passwords or using older scripts with widely known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised site will do lots of damage to all of your Internet sites, because gaining access to one script normally allows hackers to access the entire hosting account. This is the reason why we have created a new security option named JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock an Internet site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites updated, but it will greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Every single domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages has a different folder and contrary to what often happens with some other Control Panels, the content isn't mixed within just a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate is far easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a couple of clicks, so even if you do not have much experience, you won't need any specific skills to be able to maintain your Internet sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you intend to use some script which requires access to an additional folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain affected for long because we will have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so we could easily restore it.
