WordPress Brute Force Attacks

To help safeguard our clients websites against the ongoing attacks on WordPress websites, we have take extra measures to block access to requests for the default WordPress login page , wp-login.php, on our hosting servers.

Should you have trouble accessing your WordPress Administration area, please check your current IP address by going to our Support Page and then copy and paste this into a new ticket, either using your Client Portal Area or emailing support@elive.net.

These extra measures will both help blocking unauthorised access to your site and also increase server performance.

As always, we recommend to our clients to ensure they have their WordPress installation and all themes and plugins up to date.

We have WordPress Support Packages available also, so we can take care of this for you.

Regards

Elive Support Team
