If you host multiple sites in the exact same account and one of them is hacked, it is more than likely that all of them will be hacked afterwards. There're different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using out-of-date scripts with widely known weaknesses. That way, one single compromised Internet site can make a lot of damage to all of your sites, as getting access to a single script generally allows hackers to access the web hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a new security option called JailHost. Once turned on, this feature will literally lock a website in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the remaining sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they will be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of JailHost with every single shared web hosting plan that we offer and protect your Internet sites against attacks really easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our plans has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the content is not mixed up in a single main folder, so keeping your Internet sites separate is quite easy. Allowing JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even if you don't have much experience, you will not need any special skills to maintain your websites protected. The option isn't active by default in case that you'd like to use a script which requires access to another folder in your account. In case you use JailHost, the other sites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one will not remain damaged for long as we'll have a couple of daily backup copies for it all the time, so we can easily recover it.
