Has anyone used iThemes Security plugin either free or Premium on WA's servers, and is it compatible? I'd accept anyone's recommendations before adding it to my list of plugin

No I do not.

You would be able to see that in plugins and add new if compatible or not.

Thanks, Abie, I've decided to let WA security handle it for right now. I was just checking (see below, in case you haven't already. :)

All good and most welcome :)

Why would you want to use extra WordPress security when we have high-end security built-in with WA? That's part of Premium membership, awesome security measures to protect our sites.

Unless it's something related to a theme you're using? Otherwise, I'm confused... You shouldn't pay extra for more security when you already have top-notch security built-in with your website through WA's platform! 👍

Well, I use it on my other webhost, but wasn't sure about WA's servers. I'm not actually paying for it over at Stablehost either. I'm using the free version. :) But it *does* ban people who try to sign in with "Admin", and I don't use that username on Stablehost anyway. I hope that's clear. It's not on WA at all for the sites I have on WA anyway. ;) I wanted to be sure what's on the servers and the plugin won't conflict. So that's why I asked before I installed the free version, which is all I can afford, lol

Hey Katherine,

When in doubt, it's always best to ask. Good for you.

You can click on your website's Details button from your SiteManager: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites and then scroll down the page to see all of the Features included.

You should also note that you have two different types of caching abilities too: Accelerated and Extreme, so you won't need a cache plugin either.

I love the WA platform!

I was wondering why you asked about this. Now, I understand why you asked this question. The explanation you gave clarified this. The site security on this WA hosting is good. I would not buy that security plugin unless you use it at another hosting site. Are you going to migrate that site to WA?

I see, that makes sense! 👍

Glad to be of help, Colton!

It's good to know then, that the iThemes won't be needed here, just at my other webhost, which is fine. As for caching, I never understood that anyway, so I'm good here. Thanks a lot! I guess I"m just not used to Managed Hosting. lol! :)

Thanks, Brenda. Eventually, I get it, but just for my Stablehost sites. My curiosity has been satisfied, and I'm good here. But since at the other webhost I"m only using the free one, not the Premium which is iThemes Security Pro, I'm good here. I"ll use the SEO Framework on WA's server too, which is growing on me, lol. On the other host, I use Rank Math(just the free version right now.) Always good to ask first, instead of screwing it up and having to start over. :)

This is good to know. You might want to think about upgrading to Pro when and if you can afford it. I am a dedicated Rank Math Pro user. You will find Rank Math beats SEO Framework. I agree especially with the lessons. I know the feeling about screwing up and starting over. I've done that so many times. For the time being, you have to stick with what works best for you.

Caching makes your website load a LOT faster Katherine.

See screen print below...

WA is prime hosting! ;-)

Thanks for the explanation. But I meant the settings. At least I don't have to worry about it here at WA (just Stablehost, I guess, though they have Litespeed at Stablehost too. Thanks, Triblu!

I love Rank Math too, and as soon as I can afford it, I do plan to move up to Pro! They have a module for Divi, my favorite Theme (I'm a lifetime member, which means, no more bills). But it's just till I get finished with my OEC courses, then I'll probably switch to Rank Math. Do you have Rank Math for your WA sites or are they on another server, Brenda!

Hi, no, all my hostings and domains are here in WA. I never go anywhere else. Maybe someday I will try hosting elsewhere if my business grows really big. SiteGround looks interesting. Many WA members do host outside of the WA platform. That's ok—each to its own. Yes, I pay Rank Math Pro $59 a year- it is not that bad. I use the Schema theme (MyThemeShop) I have a close relationship with Bhanu the owner of both Rank Math and MyThemeShop. He has been very good to me.

Good to know that Rank Math works on that as well. I wasn't sure. I might just switch to Rank Math! ;) Thanks, Brenda!

No I have not…sorry

No, I do not use it, I can't afford their basic plan. Sorry. Hope others can provide you with the answers.
