If you host multiple Internet sites in the very same account and one of them gets hacked, it's more than likely that all of them will get hacked afterwards. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using very weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, one single compromised website can do a lot of damage to all of your Internet sites, as gaining access to one script usually allows hackers to access the whole Internet hosting account. This is the reason why we've introduced a new security option known as JailHost. Once turned on, this option will literally lock a site within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other sites in the account will remain hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option doesn't suggest that you should not keep your sites up-to-date, but it'll greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

You can take full advantage of JailHost with every single shared web hosting plan that we offer and protect your sites against attacks fast and easy. Each domain and subdomain in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our packages has a separate folder and contrary to what can often happen with many other Control Panels, the site content isn't mixed up within just a single main folder, so keeping your sites separate is much easier. Enabling JailHost for any website takes only a few clicks, so even when you don't have much experience, you won't need any special skills to be able to maintain your Internet sites secure. The option isn't active by default in case that you would like to use some script that needs accessibility to another folder inside your account. If you use JailHost, the rest of the websites that you have will be protected, but even a hacked one won't remain affected for long since we'll have several daily backups for it all the time, so we can promptly recover it.
