If you host multiple sites in the very same account and one of them is hacked, it is likely that all of them will get hacked after that. There are different reasons why this may happen, the two most common are: using very weak passwords or using older scripts with well-known weaknesses. This way, a single compromised Internet site will do lots of damage to all your Internet sites, because getting access to a single script usually allows hackers to access the hosting account. This is the reason why we have introduced a top-notch security option called JailHost. Once enabled, this option will literally lock a site in its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, the other websites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be shielded from further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your Internet sites up-to-date, but it will greatly limit the damage.
JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server solutions come with JailHost integrated by default. This option is not activated automatically when you add a domain since you may wish to use a specific script which accesses several folders in the account, but you'll be able to activate it without any difficulty from your Hepsia Control Panel and protect your other Internet sites with just a couple of clicks. Hepsia is much better to use if you have multiple Internet sites as it keeps them in separate folders and does not keep the files for several websites in the same folder as it often happens with other Control Panels. This allows us to offer JailHost as all the folders can be separated from one another. If any one of your Internet sites is hacked, we will be able to promptly restore it because of the multiple daily backup copies that we'll keep and in the mean time the attacker won't be able to do further damage as the access to your other Internet sites will be blocked.
