Cloudways Bot Protection – Understand in Short!

Last Updated on 3rd November 2022 by Ajmer Singh

Cloudways added a new feature in the year 2021 – Bot Protection. This feature is available for free to every Cloudways user.

Cloudways is the host that I use on my websites and I am amazed by the performance and speed that I achieve after switching to the Cloudways server.

Cloudways Bot Protection

Bot traffic affects your website performance in various ways,

  1. Search engine ranking
  2. Extra server usage
  3. Steal your data
  4. Spammy comments
  5. Brute force attacks
  6. Slow down your website
  7. Risk of hacking

How Cloudways Bot Protection helps you:

  1. Block bad bots traffic
  2. Block login attempts
  3. Protects from DDoS attacks
  4. Reduces server usage
  5. Show you all login attempts
  6. Show you all Bot traffic sources

These are the results of my site for the last 7 days:

However, you don’t need to worry about good bot traffic like google bots. Bot protection only blocks bad bot traffic and allows good bots.

Cloudways partnered with malcare security. If you are using the free malcare plugin then it is not available. 

You have to get their premium to use this feature. However, if you are a Cloudways user then you will get this feature for free.

If you are not using Cloudways host (which is my recommended host) then use code AJMER20 and get 20% off immediately.

You can also try their host for free without adding any credit details.
