Hosting your own website instead? Some security features may change. Read More
Our main security features come alongside our included hosting service, however if you choose a ‘maintenance only’ plan and are hosting your own website, some of these features will not be available. However, we will still perform daily security scans on your site, provide a premium security plugin to cover some additional security features, and offer additional security support.

What’s Included?

Sucuri Scanning
for all Websites

Our hosting is also partnered with Sucuri. Sucuri scanning is available and used whenever our hosting security and malware scanning detects a potential threat. Sucuri scanning will then be run of a deeper scan of your site, to help detect and remove any potential security threats or malware on your site.

Security Plugins

Since we handle all of the security at the server level, there’s no need for security plugins anymore. In fact, we recommend that you not even install them. Conflicting plugins can bring performance issues of their own.

Continuous Scans
for Malware & Hacks

We proactively scan and block malware and hacking attempts. We do all of this at the server level, without the need for any plugins or configuration.

Website Blacklist
Monitoring & Removal

We perform a blacklist check with a number of services, like Google Safe Browsing, Norton Safe Web, ESET, etc. In the unlikely case your site is blacklisted, we’ll help you in the process of getting it removed!

Website
Application Firewall

Our hosting includes a custom built-in (server side) Website Application Firewall to help protect your website!

Distributed Denial
of Service Mitigation

While most sites don’t need to worry about DDOS attacks, our hosting services include DDOS Mitigation features to help protect your website from unwanted attacks.

Limited Login
Attempts

Brute force attacks are some of the most common ways that attackers gain access to a WordPress site. We protect against this both at the site and server level; multiple failed attempts means malicious users can never get inside.

Intelligent IP blocking on our security systems detects intruders and blocks them across all sites on Flywheel within seconds. So your site’s protected from hackers before they even try to attack your site.

Certificate
