    KnownHost Santa Delivers: Managed KVM Cloud Servers & More

    I've been considering SSD for a bit - your new package prices are less expensive than they were, making the move a little easier, thanks! When are the new multi-site WP hosting accounts you mentioned coming out? Does your affiliate program pay one time or continual (as long as a new client are...

    How to stop spam -- DEAD in its tracks!!

    This is an older thread but I'm following up with an issue and a solution, in case this is helpful for others. Before I dig into the issue, I want to express that - at almost a year later, this has been the most helpful thread I've encountered on this forum. Me and my clients have received such...

    Force software updates on WordPress Hosting?

    I wanted to belatedly thank Gabba - I've jumped onto InfiniteWP and have loved it! Much easier way to manage many WP sites. I love that I can back everything up, then update. I also love that I can log into any dashboard without having to sign in to each one. Perfect. Thanks again!!

    Recent Wordpress Vulnerabilities - Brute Force Login and Cache

    I use WordFence, Sucuri & Bulletproof Security (BPS) for my WordPress sites. They complement each other in what they protect on the site. They do all need to be read through and set up to work well. I've been keeping a "cheat sheet" on my local drive for what settings I use that I update as the...

    How to stop spam -- DEAD in its tracks!!

    Step 2/Step 3 - hah, whoops - you're right. Silly me. Hm, that's weird though - I already had everything set up as you spec'd it out on that step. Thanks for the additional resource. Hm, I think most of my clients do use the SSL connection to get their mail - that may be worth enforcing :) Thanks!

    How to stop spam -- DEAD in its tracks!!

    Yes, from CSF/LFD - I was getting flooded with them recently - and 1,000 blocked IPs were rolling around every 3 days, rather than ever 7 or 8 months or so. Interesting - now that you mention it, yes, I did change the last 2 IPs to Google IPs in step 3. Hmm! I wish I could go through the full...

    I feel the same about BlueHost. They cost me a month worth of my time repairing hosting for my clients and nearly destroyed my business. I won't be going back. I'm so happy to be here with KnownHost :)

    How to stop spam -- DEAD in its tracks!!

    I went on and did #7 as well as #10, since greylisting in the new WHM/cPanel was so easy. If I'm ambitious, I'll do "Nolisting" next. I'm not going to do #8 (spamassassin settings) for each client account. (Am I understanding that correctly?) I also won't be doing #9 because only a handful of...

    How to stop spam -- DEAD in its tracks!!

    I just saw your thread when I came here to look for something else. I decided to do #1-6 today and spam stopped coming in immediately! I went through your setting and had everything set as you recommended, except #6 - the custom RBL code. It made all the difference in the world. Thanks!!

    Force software updates on WordPress Hosting?

    Thanks for the recommendation, Aurelius. I've been using WordFence to notify me or my clients when plugins need updating (and for security and page caching), but it's good to know about ithemes.com/sync if things get unmanageable. I also appreciate your recommendation that BackupBuddy can be a...

    Force software updates on WordPress Hosting?

    Oh nice - thanks again for your recommendation, Jonathan! Thanks also for finding that info regarding "informing" it of existing installs. I looked for that information but couldn't find it. Looks like this is a good lead - thanks for your help!

    Force software updates on WordPress Hosting?

    Thanks KH-Jonathan for quick reply and the heads-up on Softaculous. I was not familiar with it. It seems reasonably priced. So you say it works? I'm coming from a tough time with CPAddons so I'm a little nervous, but hopeful! Specifically, do you know if I install Softaculous in my cPanel if my...

    Force software updates on WordPress Hosting?

    Hi KH-DavidL - I'm aware that WordPress will auto-update within a release and definitely appreciate WordFence updating itself, but WordPress does not update between major releases and other plugins are all manual - with wonderful email notification from WordFence but still, I'd be running in...

    Force software updates on WordPress Hosting?

    First I have to say I am extremely happy with KnownHost servers and support. This has been the best hosting company I've ever had and I wish you all the best going forward. My question is on your "WordPress Hosting" but couldn't find very much information on it. (Just what I found on that linked...
