Included Plugins

WP Enthusiast and WP Professional hosting packages come with three plugins installed by default:

  1. Akismet
  2. Varnish http purge
  3. Wordfence

Akismet is an anti-spam plugin that is now included in the default setup of WordPress. As such, it is included in our WordPress install, as well.

Varnish http purge is a caching plugin that works with Varnish, the caching software that our WP Enthusiast and WP Pro packages rely on. Varnish http purge should not be removed. If it is, you will be unable to purge your cache and your website will not function properly.

Wordfence is a free security plugin that gives administrators information about unauthorized attempts to access their site, login records for users, information about IPs that are blocked, and more. Wordfence also offers a premium option for those who want extra security options, though this is not included in our accounts.
