If you host multiple websites within the exact same account and one of them gets hacked, it is very likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are different reasons why this could happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with known weaknesses. This way, one single compromised website will do lots of damage to all your websites, because gaining access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the entire Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a brand new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other Internet sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll significantly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with each and every shared web hosting plan that we provide and protect your websites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our plans has a different folder and in contrast to what often happens with many other Control Panels, the site content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so maintaining your websites separate is a lot easier. Allowing JailHost for any site takes only a few clicks, so even if you don't have a lot of experience, you will not need any special skills to be able to keep your sites risk-free. The option is not active by default in case that you want to use some script that requires accessibility to an additional folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the sites that you have will be secured, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for too long because we will have several daily backup copies for it at all times, so we can quickly restore it.
