Which WordPress plugins are disallowed on your WordPress platform and why?

If you have one of our WordPress hosting plans, please note that we don't allow the following plugins:

  • BackupWordPress
  • VersionPress
  • Broken Link Checker
  • MyReviewPlugin
  • LinkMan
  • Fuzzy SEO Booster
  • All pipdig plugins, including Power Pack (p3) which is a required plugin for all pipdig themes

(Please note this list is subject to change).

Our WordPress platform is super optimized for speed, so to ensure the best possible service for everyone, we ask that you don't run the above plugins because they're not optimal for performance or increase the risk of security vulnerabilities. If you need alternatives, please let our support team know and they will be able to make other suggestions. If you're already running any of these plugins, please deactivate and uninstall them as soon as possible :) 

We also strongly recommend you don't run any caching plugins as it interferes with our own caching, resulting in poorer site performance compared to our own in-built caching.

If you currently use a particular caching plugin and don't want to stop using it that's entirely your choice and you can continue to do so if you'd rather use that plugin rather than our integrated caching solution.
