Support » Fixing WordPress » Preventing brute force attacks?

  • I occasionally have brute force attacks to my site, which cause my hosting company to temporarily suspend my service. They asked me to route my DNS through Cloudflare, which I have done, but I still get the attacks. Most recently they made me create a captcha within Cloudflare for visitors accessing the frontend of my website. (Side issue: it’s supposed to be a once per year captcha but I am getting it almost every time I go to my site.) But the main issue is having the captcha up at all. Is there another way to prevent these attacks? I installed a plugin to limit login attempts but my hosting company says “The plugin you mentioned may secure the site, but it will not stop the bots from reaching our server, creating heavy process counts, and the load would still elevate.” They say I must keep the captcha up. What can I do? The captcha is seriously affecting the number of visits to my site.
