The main reasons certain plugins may be blacklisted and not allowed are as follows:
1) Conflict of Duplicate Functions within our hosting environment
Our concerns are ultimately to make sure your site is fully functional. WordPress is not a development platform and is designed around providing a highly optimized hosting experience with superior uptime, reliability, security, and redundancy.
The following below are standards with every Optimized WordPress site:
Caching: For performance and speed.
CodeGuard: For backups and redundancy.
Sitelock: For enhanced security and reduced vulnerability.
For the overall health of both your website and the server, plugins that duplicate services that we already provide and include with your WordPress account may not be used.
2) Performance Detractors
Often plugins include functionality that may cause high server loads at the time that the site is loaded. A high server load can prevent or slow your site from being loaded quickly, and can even cause site and server downtime. This can happen by:
Loading and reviewing large amounts of your code with every load.
Over frequent database access.
Poor database optimization resulting in database stability and speed issues.
In order to ensure that your site is served quickly and reliably, we must restrict the use of inefficient plugins.
3) Security Vulnerabilities
We take the security of your website very seriously. It is important to note that software on your website can potentially be accessed by malicious third-parties.
Both SiteLock and CodeGuard are included with Optimized WordPress, allowing you to scan your site for malware and restore when damage has been found. We also actively track many plugins with known vulnerabilities and prevent their installation to help provide you with the most secure possible hosting experience.
We do our best to actively maintain a list of plugins with known vulnerabilities and blacklist them accordingly to help you maintain a healthy and secure website. At any given time we have the right to add additional plugins to our blacklist. Any plugins that we feel will jeopardize your hosting experience as well as other clients due to hack and compromised attempts will be blacklisted and not permitted within our Wordpress hosting environment.
4) Email, Mailing Plugins (Spam)
In order to ensure the best experience for you, we blacklist plugins that are known to send SPAM. Many plugins are able to send mail via a
script, which can result in plugins that abuse this privilege.
Plugins that send spam to users can be detrimental to your domain, as it may become blacklisted, or worse. It is important that sending
email adhere to current SPAM laws. At SniperHost we do offer a complete autoresponder mailing platform.
