Protect yourself from attacks and data breaches with a Free SSL
Security comes as standard at InstaHost
Being the most popular content management system comes with its own problems. A common attack vector for cyber criminals is to use ‘brute force’ to guess your WordPress admin password. These are applications that cycle through common passwords and use trial and error - random letters and numbers - to try to crack your WordPress credentials.
Our Insta WordPress platform includes Insta Stack Protect, which monitors log-in attempts to your WordPress admin areas. It uses artificial intelligence to detect and classify potential ‘dangerous’ automated requests. Once detected, it will block them. This also stops our platform being slowed-down by these attempts. It blocks up to four million requests - every day.
Built and optimised by our in-house experts, the Insta WordPress Hosting platform is 100% SSD and benefits from unique speed boosting features keeping you ahead of competitors..
