Disallowed Plugins:

Our platform is designed and built exclusively for WordPress.

This platform to software exclusivity level allows us to truly fine-tune both hardware and software around WordPress. Each site is given its own PHP-FPM resource pool which is running the latest and fastest PHP software with an inbuilt PHP OPCache.

Additionally, we run several edge caching systems that cache your WordPress content right at the start of our network to ensure the fastest load times for your visitors – no matter how busy things get. To manage this, each WordPress install comes bundled with our Cache module which you can control via the WordPress admin interface. 

Unfortunately, not all plugins were designed to run at scale and may cause problems for you and your website. To provide a super-fast and secure platform for all customers, we do have some restrictions on the plugins you’re able to use on your installation. 

Disallowed Plugins

The following plugins are not allowed on our WordPress platform due to excessive resource use:

  • VersionPress
  •  Broken Link Checker
  • MyReviewPlugin
  • LinkMan 
  • Fuzzy SEO Booster

Cache Plugins:

Our WordPress platform comes with various layers of cache built-in. Our edge cache engine is one of the most effective of these cache layers, especially at scale.

Unfortunately, most cache plugins will interfere with this and as a result, can degrade your website speed, therefore, we don’t recommend running any cache plugins on your WordPress site.

Don’t panic! You won’t need them – all caching plugins are built for speed, and you can rest assured our built-in cache plugin will do that hard work for you. 

For example, WP Buzz currently scores 95+ out of 100 on Google page speed tools. You can verify it by clicking here.
