WordPress Plugins That Are Not Approved

The list of WordPress add-ons that are not allowed for installation

This article lists the list of WordPress plugins that are not allowed to be installed on our managed storage, and why they can not participate.

This listing is current as of: 2018-05-13

The Logic Behind Our Thinking

But what about WordPress plugins not approved? As a matter of fact, there are several groups of additives which each group has a separate reason for. The first group is the additives which provide some of the services we offer our customers when the product we provide meets all the needs of the customer and even more than that.

Cache Plugins

Most common cache extensions do not work with our advanced server settings (specially designed for WordPress sites).
In fact, we can not allow their activation in parallel with the solution we offer.
Once our system detects that one of the plugins is installed on your WordPress site, it will alert you about turning off the plugin.

  • Wp Super Cache
  • Wp File Cache
  • Wp Total Cache
  • Wp Cache Fastet
  • Wp Minify
  • js & css Script Optimizer

You can be calm! We’ve taken care of all our customers with the best cache extension:

Besides, you should not be concerned about the performance of your WordPress site. That’s our job. The excellent performance we provide is without doubt the main reason you chose us as your storage provider.

Backup Plugins

If you feel more confident with the additional backup service being done by WordPress plugin, in general we recommend the plugin:

We provide the plug-in to all of our customers at no cost, the plugin can be installed by our recommended extensions library on the management panel.
In general, we do not recommend using backup extensions. They are certainly unnecessary because they replicate our built-in backup system,
Consume a large amount of disk space, and usually make sure to store the backup files in an insecure location.
Not only that, most backup extensions run their backup script at the wrong time. They can slow the link with the database very much

  • WP DB Backup
  • WP DB Manager
  • BackupWordPress
  • VersionPress

If you have questions about the uPress backup system installed on your site, you are more than welcome to ask the technical support team at the following link
Our support team will be happy to answer your questions and help if necessary.

Database Optimizetion plugins

There is a certain set of plugins that we do not allow for the simple reason that they are overloading our storage servers and creating an unrealistic number of MySql queries.

  • MyReviewPlugin
  • LinkMan
  • Fuzzy SEO Booster
  • WP PostViews
  • Tweet Blender
  •  Related Posts

Almost all “related post” supplements – related Posts suffer from the same basic problems with MySql, search problems and indexing.
All of these issues make the plug-ins themselves a waste of MySql resources. “Recent posts” – Related Posts that are currently unverified are:

  • Dynamic Related Posts
  • SEO Auto Links & Related Posts
  • Yet Another Related Posts Plugin
  • Similar Posts
  • Contextual Related Posts

There are quite a few dedicated alternatives for using “Related posts” by using external servers, such as:

If you are interested in a “Related Post” service – Related Posts to your WordPress site, our recommendation is to consider adding one of the listed services.

Security Plugins

uPress Does everything to prevent hacking and suspicious access attempts to your site.
Our Web Firewall system can detect tens of thousands of types of attacks and breaches, including the latest and most sophisticated, and immediately block them to your site’s security.

Of course, you can view and manage all the security data that has accumulated in the system, make changes to the security level, and even block IP addresses of your choice.
Using security extensions becomes inefficient, creates security duplicates, and affects site performance, so we do not allow the following extensions:

  • WordFence
  • iThemes Security
  • Security Ninja
  • All in One WP Security & Firewall
  • Sucuri Security
  • AntiVirus For WordPress
  • BulletProof Security
  • Shield WordPress Security

If your site was hacked in the past, it probably still contains an existing security breach,
With the tool we developed, you can secure your site once and for all and address the root of the security problem on your WordPress site.

Another type of security plug-in is plugins that allow you to protect against failed login attempts (Brute Force Protection).
These plugins are less effective because they deal with robots trying to enter a user name and password, which is removed from a database that is fed to them, until they are lucky enough to hit the right details.
The proposed extensions identify the hacking attempts and block the WordPress site, but the robots are still trying to access the site, are still trying to enter login information, and are still loading multiple resources (server requests) on the website.

  • WP Limit Login Attempts
  • Limit Login Attempts
  • Login LockDown
  • Brute Force Login Protection
  • WPSecureOps Brute Force Protect
  • Anti-Malware Security and Brute-Force Firewall
  • BruteProtect
  • Cerber Limit Login Attempts
  • Login Security Solution

With a unique security plug-in we’ve developed that works very much like the plug-ins that have been identified by the add-on as “hacking experience” at the server level, they will not be able to access the site at all and save resources on your WordPress site. You can install the plugin through the admin panel> Select the desired site> WordPress tab> Install recommended plugins.

Additional Plugins

Also, there are several plugins that do not belong to any central group but still contain a reason or a number of reasons which after considerations we decided not to allow them on our managed server:

WP phpMyAdmin – is not supported due to a very serious security breach. We provide phpMyAdmin access regardless of this extension.
EWWW Image Optimizer – Not approved for security breach. We provide an alternative solution by the Wp-Smush Pro plugin
TimThumb – Older versions of TimThumb are known to contain security breaches. If you are using an older version you will need to upgrade to the latest version.
Broken Link Checker – This plugin generates a very large number of HTTP requests, causes heavy loads on the server and significantly reduces the performance of the site.

 

Summery

Due diligence, we have no intention of recommending abuse or saying that the unapproved extensions are not good extensions.
Many of the extensions are good extensions, each extension, and its use.
The sole consideration behind the decision is the consideration of providing our customers with the ability to expand and develop their WordPress sites.

For insecure extensions with security vulnerabilities, our team of experts carefully scans each of the extensions
And when there is a suspicion that might endanger our customers, we do not take risks and put the additive immediately into the list of unapproved supplements.
But of course we will be happy to re-check the plugin if an update has been made by the plugin creator.

In any case, we’re confident that we’re providing an appropriate alternative to each of the non-approved extensions.
