    Akismet checks your comments and contact form submissions against our global database of spam to prevent your site from publishing malicious content. You can review the comment spam it catches on your blog’s “Comments” admin screen.

    Major features in Akismet include:

    • Automatically checks all comments and filters out the ones that look like spam.
    • Each comment has a status history, so you can easily see which comments were caught or cleared by Akismet and which were spammed or unspammed by a moderator.
    • URLs are shown in the comment body to reveal hidden or misleading links.
    • Moderators can see the number of approved comments for each user.
    • A discard feature that outright blocks the worst spam, saving you disk space and speeding up your site.

    PS: You’ll be prompted to get an Akismet.com API key to use it, once activated. Keys are free for personal blogs; paid subscriptions are available for businesses and commercial sites.

    CleanTalk – Cloud-Based Anti-Spam Service to Keep Your Site Bot-Free.
    NewsWatch Review.

    Using CleanTalk on WPLift was a great test as we receive huge amounts of spam.
    Oliver Dale, WPLift.com.

    I know you have heard of a number of anti-spam plugins. But you must know, the cloud-based ones are the best regarding detection rate. They compare all the content in forms with their own algorithm to find out the legibility.

    The key selling point of CleanTalk for me is not simply its effectiveness. It’s the fact that CleanTalk works in the background. It does not make users jump through hoops in order to submit a comment or complete a form.

    How CleanTalk improves SEO for your website?

    So, you already know that the speed of the site has a direct impact on SEO.

    CleanTalk works faster than most of the other anti-spam plugins. It is common knowledge that the faster your site loads, the better your customer experience is, the better your SEO will be, and the better your site will convert. Speed is becoming increasingly important in SEO, conversion and user experience. Today, site speed is one of the most important ranking factors on Google. A site that loads slowly will lose visitors and potential revenue.

    There are different ways of improving your site’s loading performance. One important parameter for site performance is to install well-developed plugins from a reputable source.

    Among anti-spam plugins CleanTalk AntiSpam is one of the fastest. Despite the
    large plugin functionality, the developers have optimized the performance of
    the plugin so that AntiSpam by CleanTalk is faster than most analogs. This contributes to the cloud service architecture, as all calculations take place in the cloud, not on the server, the server receives the finished result for further action.


    How CleanTalk works?

    • A visitor writes a comment or registers
    • Anti-Spam by CleanTalk plugin sends action parameters into the CleanTalk cloud
    • Service analyzes the parameters
    • If this is a visitor, the comment will be published. If it’s a spam bot, then CleanTalk blocks this comment or registration.
    • Parameters are written to the spam log which can be viewed in the Control Panel service.

    CleanTalk team has been developing a cloud antispam system for five years and has created a truly reliable anti-spam service designed for you to guarantee
    your safety.

    Spam attacks log

    Service CleanTalk (this plugin is a client application for CleanTalk anti-spam service) records all filtered comments, registration and other spam attacks in the “Log of spam attacks” and stores the data in the log for up to 45 days. Using the log, you can ensure reliable protection of your website from spam and no false/positive filtering.

    Spam FireWall

    CleanTalk has an advanced option “Spam FireWall”. Spam FireWall allows blocking the most active spam bots before they get access to your website. It prevents spam bots from loading website pages so your web server doesn’t have to perform all scripts on these pages. Also it prevents scanning of pages of the website by spam bots. Therefore Spam FireWall significantly reduces the load on your web server. Spam FireWall also makes CleanTalk the two-step protection from spam bots. Spam FireWall is the first step and it blocks the most active spam bots. CleanTalk Anti-Spam is the second step and checks all other requests on the website in the moment of submitting comments/registers etc.

    Spam FireWall is fully compatible with the most popular VPN services.
    Also, Spam FireWall supports all search engines Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, MSN, Yandex and etc.

    How Spam FireWall works?

    • The visitor enters to your web site.
    • HTTP request data are being checked in the nearly 5.8 million of the identified spam bot IPs.
    • If it is an active spam bot, the bot gets a blank page, if it is a visitor then he receives a normal page. This process is completely transparent for the visitors.

    All the CleanTalk Spam FireWall activity is being logged in the process of filtering.

    Spam FireWall DDoS Protection

    Spam FireWall can mitigate HTTP/HTTPS DDoS attacks. When an intruder makes GET requests to attack your website, Spam FireWall blocks all requests from bad IP addresses. Your website gives the intruder a special page with the description of DDoS rejection instead of the website pages. Therefore Spam FireWall helps to reduce CPU usage of your server.

    Spam FireWall: Anti-Flood & Anti-Crawler

    Spam FireWall: Anti-Flood and Anti-Crawler options are intended for blocking unwanted bots, content parsing, shop goods prices parsing or aggressive website scanning bots. Learn more https://cleantalk.org/help/anti-flood-and-anti-crawler

    How to protect sites from spam bots without CAPTCHA?

    The most popular anti spam method is CAPTCHA – the annoying picture with curved and sloping symbols, which are presented to the visitor to decipher and fill in. In is supposed that spam bots won’t discern these CAPTCHA, but a visitor will. CAPTCHA provokes great irritation, but if the visitor wants to comment, he has to fill in these symbols time after time, making mistakes and starting once again. Sometimes CAPTCHA reminds us of the doodles of a two year old child. For users with vision problems CAPTCHA is an insurmountable obstacle. Users hate captcha. Captcha for users means “hate”. Unreadable CAPTCHA stops about 80% of site visitors. After 2 failed attempts to decipher CAPTCHA 95% of visitors reject further attempts. At the sight of CAPTCHA and after input errors, many visitors leave the resource. Thus, CAPTCHA helps to protect the resource spam both from bots and visitors. CAPTCHA is not a panacea from spam. Doubts concerning the Need for CAPTCHA?

    “Ultimately, CAPTCHAs are useless for spam because they’re designed to tell you if someone is ‘human’ or not, but not whether something is spam or not.” Matt Mullenweg

    You do not have to work in IT to know what spam is. Besides piles of unwanted email, there are spam bots, or special software programs designed to act as human website visitors that post unwelcome messages over the Internet to advertise dubious services. More often than not spam messages do not even make sense. Similar to bacteria and virus mutations developing antibiotic resistance, spam bots are becoming more resilient in penetrating Internet firewalls and security layers.

    CleanTalk’s features

    Anti-Spam by CleanTalk with Spam FireWall is one of the fastest plugins that allows you to lower the server load. One of the important parameters for each webmaster is the speed of the site, so we make sure that our plugin consumes as few server resources as possible. The Cloud Service provides the advantage: all data processing takes place in the Cloud.

    CleanTalk team has developed unique anti spam algorithms to assess visitors behavior. CleanTalk analyzes user behavior and the parameters of the filled forms. Our anti-spam module, being installed in your website, sends the behavior parameters of either a visitor or a spam bot. When these parameters are estimated, the anti spam service makes a decision – to post a message or to define it as spam and reject it. Based on these checks, the service forms its own list of email addresses used by spam bots.

    The registrations of visitors are being checked in a similar manner. The service adds to the blacklist not just email addresses, but also IP addresses and domains of websites that promote themselves through spam mailing. All of this happens automatically and requires no action from the administration of the website. In 2.5 million queries the service makes a mistake in 40-45 cases, i.e. CleanTalk detects spam with 99.9982% accuracy. We constantly monitor these errors and make adjustments to our algorithms. Even with this exceptional accuracy our team is aiming to improve the figures over time.

    All-in-one. CleanTalk protects form spam all forms instantaneously – comments, registrations, feedback, contacts. No need to install additional plugins for each form. You save resources and increase performance of your website.

    Spam attacks log. Anti-Spam by CleanTalk records all filtered comments, registrations and other spam attacks in the “Log of spam attacks” and stores the data in the log for up to 45 days. Using the log, you can ensure reliable protection of your website from spam and experience no false/positive filtering.

    With the help of anti-spam by CleanTalk you can check existing comments and users, to find and quickly delete spam comments at once. This allows administrators of websites to automatically check and identify spam bots, comments and users, which were not detected by conventional anti-spam tools. The existing comments and users checking process is performed in a database of the nearly 2 million identified spam bots. Detailed spam stats allows CleanTalk customers to fully control it.

    CleanTalk has an advanced option “Spam FireWall”. This option allows you to block the most active spam bots before they get access to your website. It unloads you website pages when an attempt attack was made, so your web server won’t run unnecessary scripts on these pages. Also it prevents any scanning of website pages by spam bots. Subsequently Spam FireWall significantly reduces your webserver load. Spam FireWall can mitigate HTTP/HTTPS DDoS attacks. When an intruder makes GET requests to attack your website, Spam FireWall will block requests from bad IP addresses. Your website gives the intruder a special page with a description of DDoS rejection instead of the website pages. Spam FireWall can help to reduce the CPU usage of your server because of this reason.

    “CleanTalk team has been developing a cloud spam protection system for five years and has created a truly reliable anti-spam service designed for you to guarantee your safety”.

    White Label Mode

    To switch the plugin work in the white-label mode you should set up a few settings on your main site in WordPress Multisite Network:

    1. Check setting “Enable White Label Mode”.
    2. Fill “Hoster API Key” field with key from CleanTalk’s hoster panel.
    3. Fill “Plugin name” field. It could be any name you want for the plugin.
    4. Save settings.

    The plugin will do everything rest.

    Auto-Update CleanTalk AntiSpam

    CleanTalk Dashboard allows you to set auto-update plugin and select several websites and update the plugin at once on all sites by one click or you can setup auto-update for all websites or separate websites.

    Note: there is 24 hours delay before auto-update will do. This delay allows needing to avoid any issues. All updates that made through CleanTalk Dashboard manually will do immediately.

    Auto-updating system will work from CleanTalk AntiSpam version 5.88

    Real-time email validation. Is email real or Not.

    It is very important to be sure that the user used his real email address. Spambots very often use fake email addresses, i.e. which addresses do not exist.

    CleanTalk will check email addresses for existence in real time.

    Non-existing email addresses also entail several other problems for website owners.

    • You can never contact them by email,
    • the client will never receive any notifications from you (account activation letter, password recovery, email distribution, notifications, etc.),
    • if you use email marketing for your clients, then a large number of nonexistent emails in the mailing list may result in your IP address being added to various blacklists of email servers.

    Improve your email list with email validation without fake emails.

    Blocking disposable & temporary emails

    Block fake and suspicious users with disposable & temporary emails to improve email delivery. So, it also prevents malicious activity, spam bots, and internet trolls.

    Stops Spam in Search Form

    Spam bots can use your search form to make a GET request with spam text.
    CleanTalk Anti-Spam has the option to protect your website search form from spam bots. Each time, the search generates a new page and if there are many requests, this can create additional load. So, under some conditions, spam searches can be indexed, which affects SEO,

    • Spam FireWall blocks access to all website pages for the most active spambots. It lowers your web server load and traffic just by doing this.
    • Anti-Spam protection for website search forms repels spambots.
    • If your search form gets data too often the CleanTalk Anti-Spam plugin will add a pause and increase it with each new attempt to send data. It saves your web server processor time.
    • Spam protection allows you to not forbid indexation for the crawler bots if you really need it but simultaneously you will get protection from spambots.

    You will always know what users were looking for on your site.

    Disable comments

    This option disables comments on your site. You can choose one or several options:

    • Disable comments for posts
    • Disable comments for pages
    • Disable comments for media

    When using Disables comments, existing comments will not be deleted and will remain on the pages.

    An exceptionally powerful and user-friendly WordPress anti-spam plugin that eliminates comment spam, contact form spam, registration spam, trackback spam, pingback spam, and every other type of WordPress spam.

    The All-in-One Anti-Spam Plugin for WordPress – Without CAPTCHAs

    Leading edge WordPress spam protection, with NO CAPTCHAs, challenge questions or other inconvenience to site visitors. This plugin works silently in the background, and simply makes WordPress spam disappear.

    Plugin Documentation | Troubleshooting Guide | FAQs | Support Requests

    How It Works

    Most of the spam hitting your site originates from bots, but quite a bit comes from humans too. This plugin works like a firewall to ensure that your commenters are in fact, human, and that those humans aren’t spamming you.

    Two Layers of Spam Blocking

    There are two layers of leading edge anti-spam protection that work together to block both automated (spambots) and human spam:

    1. The JavaScript/Cookies Anti-Spam Layer
    2. The Algorithmic Anti-Spam Layer

    The first anti-spam layer uses a dynamic combination of JavaScript and cookies to weed out the humans from spambots, preventing 100% of automated spam from ever getting to your site. Even if bot authors could engineer a way to break through the JavaScript/Cookies Anti-Spam Layer, the Algorithmic Anti-Spam Layer would still stop almost all of the spam that the JavaScript Layer blocks, and provides close to a fully redundant backstop. This JavaScript Anti-Spam Layer utilizes multiple randomly generated keys, and is algorithmically enhanced to ensure that spambots won’t beat it. The powerful Algorithmic Anti-Spam Layer consists of over 100 advanced filters, and eliminates trackback spam and most human spam as well. And, it does all that without hindering legitimate comments, trackbacks, contact forms, or registrations.

    No More Wasted Time Sifting Through the Comment Spam Queue

    This type of solution works invisibly in the background, with no inconveniences. You won’t have to waste valuable time sifting through a spam queue any more, because there won’t be anything there.

    WP-SpamShield is different from other anti-spam plugins in that it BLOCKS spam at the front door of your site and doesn’t allow it into the WordPress database at all. Many other anti-spam plugins simply label a comment as spam, leaving you to sort through a spam queue, which wastes your valuable time. WP-SpamShield will give you back your time!

    Improves User-Friendliness of Your Website

    If you want to improve the user-friendliness of your site, this is THE anti-spam plugin you want. After all, why should your users have to prove they are human? Since your users won’t be inconvenienced by outdated and frustrating anti-spam methods, you will provide a smoother, trouble-free experience for your website users, which leads to improved readership, ad revenue, sales, or other types of conversion, and therefore greater success for your website.

    Improves Security

    Not allowing spam into the database improves security by potentially preventing SQL injection, DDoS, and XSS exploit attacks through automated spam comment submissions. WP-SpamShield fixes the security issues inherent to Pingbacks, and prevents Pingback-based DDoS attacks. As part of the Miscellaneous Form Spam Protection, the plugin protects against XML-RPC brute force amplification attacks. The plugin also has several other features that improve security, such as blocking certain potentially dangerous URLs in spam comment submissions, and limiting comment size to 15kb. (15kb of text is roughly the equivalent of 3 typed pages in Microsoft Word, single-spaced, so that’s more than enough for even the longest of comments.) See this blog post for more info.

    Helps Improve Overall Website Performance

    The plugin helps keep your WordPress database slimmer and more efficient (keeping your site running faster in the long term) by not allowing the thousands upon thousands of spam comments into it, which could bloat the database and potentially corrupt it. Keeping your database lean is extremely important, because bloated databases result in much longer query times and increased server load, slowing down a site dramatically even for simple functions. If website performance is important to you, then you definitely want an anti-spam plugin like WP-SpamShield instead of a plugin that uses a spam queue. See this FAQ for more detailed info.

    ZERO False Positives

    It does all this with ZERO false positives, because of the method used to block spam. Notice we didn’t say a “low false positive rate” – we said ZERO false positives. If a comment/contact form/registration gets blocked as spam, the user is given instant feedback and has a chance to correct their comment/contact form/registration/etc and try again, which means there cannot be false positives. This leads to fewer frustrated website visitors, and less work for you. We are committed to keeping the promise of zero false positives.

    100% Pingback/Trackback Validation and Anti-Spam

    The trackback validation contains a filter that compares the client IP address of the incoming trackbacks and pingbacks against the IP address of the server where the link is supposedly coming from. If they don’t come from the same server, then it is guaranteed spam, without fail. This alone eliminates more than 99.99% of trackback & pingback spam. Trackback spammers don’t send spam out from the same server where their clients’ websites reside. There are algorithmic anti-spam filters in place to ensure 100% trackback/pingback spam blocking. You can be confident that only legitimate trackbacks and pingbacks will get through.

    Includes a Spam-Free Contact Form, and Anti-Spam for Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms, Ninja Forms, JetPack Contact Forms, and Most Other Forms

    Includes drop-in spam-free contact form, with easy one-click installation. Easy to use – no configuration necessary, but you can configure it if you like. (See Installation for info.) WP-SpamShield also includes automatic anti-spam protection for Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms, Ninja Forms, JetPack Contact Forms, Fast Secure Contact Forms, Formidable Forms, and more. (You don’t have to do a thing…just add your Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms, Ninja Forms, JetPack Contact Forms, or other forms to your site, and they will automatically be protected.) It will automatically protect most forms on your WordPress site from automated spam, even if they are not listed here.

    WordPress Registration Anti-Spam

    The plugin also includes powerful protection from user registration spam. Once you install WP-SpamShield, you don’t have to worry about bots or spammy users signing up any more. (Note: This protects almost all registration forms, including the WordPress default registration form, and registration forms for bbPress, BuddyPress, WooCommerce, s2Member, WP-Members, and many more. See this FAQ for more info.

    Stops Email Harvesters

    The plugin has a feature to thwart email harvesting bots and keep them from scraping your site for email addresses. (Which helps reduce spam in your email inbox.) The plugin automatically obfuscates plain text email addresses and mailto links in your website content by encoding them into HTML entities (hexadecimal and decimal character codes that look like gibberish to harvesters, but render the email addresses perfectly in a browser). It protects email addresses on pages, posts, comments, excerpts, and text widgets.

    Why Not Just Use a CAPTCHA-Based Anti-Spam Method?

    The concept of using a CAPTCHA as an anti-spam solution in this modern day and age is flawed for several reasons:

    1. It’s an outdated concept that has far outlived its usefulness, and was originally developed before user-friendliness was a high priority.
    2. It goes in the exact opposite direction of user-friendly design principles. Think about it. Users of your website have to type in numbers and letters obscured by squiggly lines and symbols, only to be told they are wrong several times, even after typing in the correct answer. This is proven to hurt website business and revenue because of the negative feelings it causes. People simply don’t like CAPTCHAs.
    3. It is not the user’s responsibility to separate humans from bots, or to stop spam; it’s the web developer’s responsibility. Even if the CAPTCHA is simple, and all the user has to do is click a button, it is still annoying and unnecessary. It’s one extra step that you are putting between your user and their end goal.
    4. CAPTCHAs can be defeated. In fact, bots have been cracking CAPTCHAs since 2008. The only benefit of a CAPTCHA was that it was considered to be unbeatable by bots. That day is long past.
    5. Why use a CAPTCHA when there are better solutions that don’t inconvenience your website users?

    Optimized and Scalable – Won’t Slow Down Your Site

    This plugin has an extremely low overhead and won’t slow down your site, unlike some other anti-spam plugins. Each of the filters in the plugin have been benchmarked, and when processing comments for spam, the fastest filters are put at the front of the stack. Once a comment tests positive for spam, the testing process terminates and will not engage the remaining filters. Additionally, as mentioned above, by keeping spam out of the WordPress database altogether, WP-SpamShield helps keep your database slimmer and more efficient, which in turn helps keep your site running faster. This efficiency helps keep the server load down, and helps improve the overall performance of your site. WP-SpamShield is optimized to work well with all major caching plugins.

    Faster than the Cloud

    Speaking of scalability, WP-SpamShield can kill spam faster than any cloud-based anti-spam solution. Cloud-based anti-spam plugins are inherently slower at processing spam because they have to connect to an external server to check the spam status, which in turn will increase your site’s server load. With WP-SpamShield, all anti-spam processing happens directly on your website’s server, with lightning speed.

    Free for Commercial and Personal Websites

    No cost, no hidden fees. This powerful anti-spam plugin is free for both Commercial and Personal use. If you find that WP-SpamShield benefits you, and you’re so inclined, then feel free to make a donation.

    Responsive and Helpful Tech Support

    If you have any issues with the plugin, we are here to help. Simply submit a support request at the WP-SpamShield Support Page, and we’ll help you diagnose and fix the issue quickly. Don’t take our word for it though – look through our plugin ratings/reviews and notice the high percentage of resolved support threads and satisfied users.

    Additional Features

    1. WP-SpamShield provides automatic anti-spam protection for: Contact Form 7 forms, Gravity Forms, Ninja Forms, JetPack Contact Forms; BuddyPress, bbPress and WooCommerce registration forms; Mailchimp signup forms; almost all other WordPress forms; and almost all registration forms!
    2. As of version 1.9.2, WP-SpamShield protects JetPack Comments from spam. (Making it one of the few anti-spam plugins that works with JetPack Comments.)
    3. A counter on your dashboard to keep track of all the spam it’s blocking. The numbers will show how effective this plugin is.
    4. See what’s been blocked with “Blocked Comment Logging Mode”, a temporary diagnostic mode that logs blocked spam (comments, trackbacks, registrations, and contact form submissions) for 7 days, then turns off automatically. If you want to see what spam has been blocked, or verify that everything is working, turn this on and see what WP-SpamShield is protecting your site from.
    5. Multiple languages available and more on the way. Currently includes Dutch (nl_NL), French (fr_FR), German (de_DE), Indonesian (id_ID), Italian (it_IT), Serbian (sr_RS), and Swedish (sv_SE) translations. Ready for translation into other languages. Want to help translate? Join the project!
    6. Easy to install – truly plug and play. Just upload and activate. (Installation Status on the plugin admin page to let you know if plugin is installed correctly.)
    7. Compatible with, and optimized for all major cache plugins, including WP Super Cache and many others. Not all anti-spam plugins can say that.
    8. Display your blocked spam stats on your site. Customizable widgets for graphic counters to display spam stats, in multiple colors, sizes and options.
    9. Works in WordPress Multisite as well. (See the related FAQ for details.)
    10. Enhanced Comment Blacklist option. Instead of just sending comments to moderation as with WordPress’s default Comment Blacklist functionality, with this turned on, anything that matches a string in the blacklist will be completely blocked. Block specific human spammers by IP, email address, or a number of other options. The Enhanced Comment Blacklist has some improvements over the default WordPress blacklist functionality, and adds a link in the comment & contact form notification emails that will let you blacklist a spammer’s IP with one click. It also provides some advanced custom options for blocking spam on everything else that WP-SpamShield protects.
    11. WP-SpamShield Whitelist option. Allows you to specify certain users who you want to let bypass the antispam filters.
    12. This plugin is legal to use in Germany and the EU, and does not violate European privacy laws. It does not use any type of cloud-based service, spam data is not transmitted from your server to any other server, and all anti-spam processing happens directly on your website’s server.

    WordPress Mail SMTP Plugin

    Having problems with your WordPress site not sending emails? You’re not alone. Over 2 million websites use WP Mail SMTP to send their emails reliably.

    Our goal is to make email deliverability easy and reliable. We want to ensure your emails reach the inbox.

    WP Mail SMTP fixes your email deliverability by reconfiguring WordPress to use a proper SMTP provider when sending emails.

    Best of all, our easy-to-use Setup Wizard and detailed documentation guide you through the process.

    What is SMTP?

    SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is an industry standard for sending emails. Proper SMTP configuration helps increase email deliverability by using authentication.

    Popular email clients like Gmail, Yahoo, Office 365, and Zoho are in a constant battle with email spammers. One of the things they look at is if an email is originating from the location it claims to be originating from.

    If the proper authentication isn’t there, then emails either go in the SPAM folder or worst, don’t get delivered at all.

    This is a problem for a lot of WordPress sites because by default, WordPress uses the PHP mail function to send emails generated by WordPress or any contact form plugin like WPForms.

    The issue is that most WordPress hosting companies don’t have their servers properly configured for sending PHP emails.

    The combination of two causes your WordPress emails to not get delivered.

    How does WP Mail SMTP work?

    WP Mail SMTP plugin easily resolves email delivery problems by improving and changing how your WordPress site sends email. We reconfigure the wp_mail() function to either use proper SMTP host credentials or leverage a built-in SMTP mail provider.

    When using one of our built-in SMTP mail provider integrations (recommended), emails are sent using the provider’s direct API. This means even if your web host is blocking SMTP ports, your emails still send successfully.

    This helps you fix all WordPress not sending email issues.

    WP Mail SMTP plugin includes many different SMTP setup options:

    1. SMTP.com (Recommended)
    2. Sendinblue SMTP (Recommended)
    3. Mailgun SMTP
    4. SendGrid SMTP
    5. Gmail SMTP
    6. Microsoft SMTP (Outlook.com and Office 365) [Pro]
    7. Amazon SES SMTP [Pro]
    8. Zoho Mail SMTP [Pro]
    9. All Other SMTP

    For most options, you can specify the “from name” and “email address” for outgoing emails.

    Instead of having users use different SMTP plugins and workflows for different SMTP providers, we decided to bring it all in one. This is what makes WP Mail SMTP, the best SMTP solution for WordPress.


    SMTP.com is a recommended transactional email service.

    With over 22 years of email delivery expertise, SMTP.com has been around for almost as long as email itself. They are known among internet providers as one of the most reliable senders on the internet.

    Their easy integration process lets you start sending emails in minutes and benefit from years of experience. SMTP.com provides users 50,000 free emails the first 30 days.

    Read our SMTP.com documentation for more details.

    Sendinblue SMTP

    Sendinblue is a recommended transactional email service.

    They serve 80,000+ growing companies around the world and send over 30 million emails each day.

    Their email deliverability experts are constantly at work optimizing the reliability and speed of their SMTP infrastructure. Sendinblue provides users 300 free emails per day.

    Read our Sendinblue documentation for more details.

    Mailgun SMTP

    Mailgun SMTP is a popular SMTP service provider that allows you to send large quantities of emails. They provide 5,000 free emails per month for 3 months.

    WP Mail SMTP plugin offers a native integration with MailGun. All you have to do is connect your Mailgun account, and you will improve your email deliverability.

    Read our Mailgun documentation for more details.

    SendGrid SMTP

    SendGrid has a free SMTP plan that you can use to send up to 100 emails per day. With our native SendGrid SMTP integration, you can easily and securely set up SendGrid SMTP on your WordPress site.

    Read our SendGrid documentation for more details.

    Gmail SMTP

    Often bloggers and small business owners don’t want to use third-party SMTP services. Well you can use your Gmail or G Suite account for SMTP emails.

    This allows you to use your professional email address and improve email deliverability.

    Unlike other Gmail SMTP plugins, our Gmail SMTP option uses OAuth to authenticate your Google account, keeping your login information 100% secure.

    Read our Gmail documentation for more details.

    Microsoft SMTP (Outlook.com and Office 365)

    Many businesses use Outlook.com or Microsoft 365 to power their email. Our Microsoft mailer integration allows you to use your existing Outlook.com or Microsoft 365 account to send emails from WordPress for better deliverability.

    Read our Outlook and Microsoft 365 documentation for more details.

    Amazon SES SMTP

    Advanced or technical users can harness the power of Amazon AWS (Amazon Web Services) with the Amazon SES mailer. With this integration, you can send a high volume of emails at a very reasonable rate.

    Read our Amazon SES documentation for more details.

    Zoho Mail SMTP

    Send emails using your personal or business Zoho Mail account, all while keeping your login credentials safe.

    Read our Zoho Mail documentation for more details.

    Other SMTP

    WP Mail SMTP plugin also works with all major email services such as Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Microsoft Live, and any other email sending service that offers SMTP.

    You can set the following options:

    • Specify an SMTP host.
    • Specify an SMTP port.
    • Choose SSL / TLS encryption.
    • Choose to use SMTP authentication or not.
    • Specify an SMTP username and password.

    To see recommended settings for the popular services as well as troubleshooting tips, check out our SMTP documentation.

    We hope that you find WP Mail SMTP plugin helpful!

    WP Mail SMTP PRO

    In addition to native Microsoft, Amazon SES, and Zoho Mail integrations, WP Mail SMTP Pro provides access to many other powerful features and services.

    Email Log

    Email Logging lets you log and view all emails sent from your site. Email logs are helpful for storing emails for your records, auditing outgoing emails, and debugging during site development.

    But that’s just the beginning. Our powerful WordPress email logs unlock extra tools to help you measure email engagement and improve email deliverability:

    Resend Emails

    You resend any email or forward it to one or more email addresses, right from your email log. From the overview page, you can also resend multiple emails in bulk. This is an awesome way to resend emails that failed or forward important emails to an alternative email address.

    Track Email Opens and Clicks

    Wondering if an important email was actually opened, or if any links in the email were clicked? Our email log lets you view open and click tracking stats for your WordPress emails.

    Store Email Attachments

    WP Mail SMTP lets you store all of the email attachments that are sent from your WordPress site. That makes it easy to review an attachment or archive it locally.

    Export Email Logs

    Easily export your WordPress email logs to CSV, EML, or Excel. You can filter the email logs before you export and only download the data you need. This feature lets you easily create your own deliverability reports. You can also use the data in 3rd party dashboards to track deliverability along with your other website statistics.

    Print Emails

    Once you’ve activated email logging, any individual log file can be printed in an easy-to-read format. If you want to archive an email log digitally, it’s easy to export it to a PDF document too.

    Manage Multisite Email Logs Easily

    WP Mail SMTP makes it easy for Network Admins to view and manage email logs for subsites. You can access all of your deliverability information from the Network Admin dashboard and quickly switch between subsites. That makes it easy to review email logging data for all subsites on one centralized page.

    Email Reports

    Email reports make it easy to track deliverability and engagement at-a-glance. Your open and click-through rates are grouped by subject line, making it easy to review the performance of campaigns or notifications. The report also displays Sent and Failed emails each week so you spot any issues quickly. You’ll also see an email report chart right in your WordPress dashboard.

    Weekly Email Summary

    Get statistics about WordPress emails sent directly into your inbox. Our weekly emails reveal how many emails are being sent from your WordPress site, and which ones are getting opens and clicks. The Summary also shows you deliverability statistics at-a-glance so you can spot any issues without logging into WordPress.

    Manage WordPress Emails and Notifications

    The Manage Notification feature gives you full control over which email notifications WordPress sends. This means you can disable different WordPress notification emails. Don’t want to receive emails when new users are created? No problem, turn it off.

    WordPress Multisite Network Settings

    For users running a multisite network, our network settings provide a centralized location to easily configure your SMTP settings for all sites, saving you time.

    Expert Support

    We provide limited support for the WP Mail SMTP plugin on the WordPress.org forums. Access to our world class one-on-one email support is available to WP Mail SMTP Pro users.

    White Glove Setup

    Our White Glove Setup service is a great option that anyone can benefit from. Whether you don’t have the time or maybe you feel a bit in over your head – we’ve got you covered.

    You can sit back and relax while we set up everything for you. White glove setup includes WP Mail SMTP plugin installation and setup, configuration adjustments to your DNS for proper email domain name verification, SMTP.com or Mailgun setup, and final testing to confirm everything is passing with flying colors.


    The WP Mail SMTP team takes security very seriously. Not only does the plugin follow all security best practices, but we have several options available to ensure your site is safe and secure.

    • Direct SMTP mailer integrations (recommended), such as SMTP.com, SendGrid and Mailgun, use the official provider APIs. This means you never enter your username or password in the plugin settings and these credentials are not stored in the database. Instead, we use tokens or API keys which are much more secure.

    • When using Other SMTP mailer, we provide the option to insert your password in your wp-config.php file, so it’s not visible in your WordPress settings or saved in the database.


    WP Mail SMTP plugin was originally created by Callum Macdonald. It is now owned and maintained by the team behind WPForms – the best drag & drop form builder for WordPress.

    You can try the free version of WPForms plugin to see why it’s the best in the market.

    WPBruiser (formerly GoodBye Captcha) is an anti-spam and security plugin based on algorithms that identify spam bots without any annoying and hard to read captcha images.

    WPBruiser completely eliminates spam-bot signups, spam comments, even brute force attacks, the second you install it on your WordPress website. It is completely invisible to the end-user – no need to ever fill out a Captcha or other “human-detection” field ever again – and it just works!

    Unlike other anti-spam plugins, which detect spam comments and signups after the fact and move them to your spam folder, which you then have to delete – using up not only your website’s resources, but your time as well, WPBruiser prevents the bots from leaving spam in the first place. The result is that your site is not only spam free, it’s faster and more secure.

    In addition, WPBruiser is completely self-contained and does not need to connect to any outside service. Your logins remain yours, 100%.

    WPBruiser fights Brute Force attacks and eliminates spam-bots on comments, signup pages as well as login and password reset pages. At the click of a button, you can decide which forms to protect.

    Titan includes anti-spam, firewall, malware scanner, site accessibility checking, security and threats audits for WordPress websites. Our security functions provide Titan with the latest firewall rules, malware signatures, and database of malicious IP addresses – all you need to ensure the security of your website.

    Titan is a comprehensive WordPress security solution, completed by a set of additional features as add-ons, which was placed into a simple and intuitive interface.

    Why did we update Anti-Spam and what is Titan?

    Let me tell you before we start: your favorite Anti-Spam had not disappeared! Instead of that it revived and became stronger to stand guard over the secure of your site!
    The latest update of Anti-Spam is called Titan Anti-spam & Security and represents the brand new version of a plugin.

    Why TITAN?

    We aim to create a plugin as reliable as this metal – and easy-to-use at the same time. The new name of our plugin sets the pace with newest and highest standards of quality.

    What has been changed except the name?
    Whilst the process of modernization we had to take some complicated decisions. One of them was:
    What should we do: keep Anti-Spam like a simple plugin with the only one function or complicate it with a huge complex of tools made for the security of your site?
    Constant feedback from users and versatile development experience lets us claim that the situation when there is too many tools couldn’t exist!
    We considered all possibilities thoroughly to secure the best future for the plugin.
    Let me introduce new secure functionality that was developed with spending a lot of time, effort and consideration:




    • No captcha.
    • We have created algorithms to ensure reliability and accuracy against spam bots.

    • Recover modified files by overwriting them with the original version.
    • Delete unknown and unwanted files easily via the Titan interface.
    • Checks your site for vulnerabilities and notifies in case of any problems or discrepancies. It also provides a notification of potential security issues when the plugin has been closed or inactivated.
    • Checks the content security by scanning the contents of files, messages and comments for dangerous URLs and suspicious content.


    • Check the availability of any URL
    • Push notifications in the browser to show URLs access issues in real time.
      Your browser will receive push notifications if one of the URLS is unavailable.


    • Strong Password Requirement
    • Hide author login
    • Hide WordPress versions. WordPress itself and many plugins show their version at the visible areas of your site. An attacker who received this information may be aware of the vulnerabilities found in the version of the WordPress core or plugins.

    WordPress itself is a very secure platform. However, it helps to add some extra security and firewall to your site by using a security plugin that enforces a lot of good security practices.

    The All In One WordPress Security plugin will take your website security to a whole new level.

    This plugin is designed and written by experts and is easy to use and understand.

    It reduces security risk by checking for vulnerabilities, and by implementing and enforcing the latest recommended WordPress security practices and techniques.

    All In One WP Security also uses an unprecedented security points grading system to measure how well you are protecting your site based on the security features you have activated.

    Our security and firewall rules are categorized into “basic”, “intermediate” and “advanced”. This way you can apply the firewall rules progressively without breaking your site’s functionality.

    The All In One WordPress Security plugin doesn’t slow down your site and it is 100% free.

    Visit the WordPress Security Plugin page for more details.

    Below is a list of the security and firewall features offered in this plugin:

    User Accounts Security

    • Detect if there is a user account which has the default “admin” username and easily change the username to a value of your choice.
    • The plugin will also detect if you have any WordPress user accounts which have identical login and display names. Having account’s where display name is identical to login name is bad security practice because
      you are making it 50% easier for hackers because they already know the login name.
    • Password strength tool to allow you to create very strong passwords.
    • Stop user enumeration. So users/bots cannot discover user info via author permalink.

    User Login Security

    • Protect against “Brute Force Login Attack” with the Login Lockdown feature. Users with a certain IP address or range will be locked out of the system for a predetermined amount of time based on the configuration settings and you can also choose to be notified
      via email whenever somebody gets locked out due to too many login attempts.

    • As the administrator you can view a list of all locked out users which are displayed in an easily readable and navigable table which also allows you to unlock individual or bulk IP addresses at the click of a button.

    • Force logout of all users after a configurable time period
    • Monitor/View failed login attempts which show the user’s IP address, User ID/Username and Date/Time of the failed login attempt

    Comment SPAM Security

    • Monitor the most active IP addresses which persistently produce the most SPAM comments and instantly block them with the click of a button.

    Limit login attempts done right

    By default, WordPress allows unlimited login attempts through the login form, XML-RPC or by sending special cookies. This allows passwords to be cracked with relative ease via brute force attack.

    WP Cerber blocks intruders by IP or subnet from making further attempts after a specified limit on retries is reached, making brute force attacks or distributed brute force attacks from botnets impossible.

    You will be able to create a Black IP Access List or White IP Access List to block or allow logins from a particular IP address, IP address range or a subnet any class (A,B,C).

    Moreover, you can create your Custom login page and forget about automatic attacks to the default wp-login.php, which takes your attention and consumes a lot of server resources. If an attacker tries to access wp-login.php they will be blocked and get a 404 Error response.

    Malware scanner

    Cerber Security Scanner is a sophisticated and extremely powerful tool that thoroughly scans every folder and inspects every file on a website for traces of malware, trojans, backdoors, changed and new files.

    Read more about the malware scanner.

    Integrity checker

    The scanner checks if all WordPress folders and files match what exist in the official WordPress core repository, compares your plugins and themes with what are in the official WordPress repository and alerts you to any changes. As with scanning free plugins and themes, the scanner scans and verifies commercial plugins and themes that are installed manually.

    Scheduled Scans With Automatic File Recovery

    Cerber Security Scanner allows you to configure a schedule for automated recurring scanning easily. Once the schedule is configured the scanner automatically scans the website, deletes malware and recovers modified and infected WordPress files. After every scan, you can get an optional email report with the results of the scan.

    Read more about the scheduled scans.

    Two-Factor Authentication

    Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) provides an additional layer of security requiring a second factor of identification beyond just a username and password. When 2FA is enabled on a website, it requires a user to provide an additional verification code when signing into the website. This verification code is generated automatically and sent to the user by email.

    Read more about Two-Factor Authentication.

    Log, filter out and export activities

    WP Cerber tracks time, IP addresses and usernames for successful and failed login attempts, logins, logouts, password changes, blocked IP and actions taken by itself. You can export them to a CSV file.

    Limit login attempts reinvented

    You can hide WordPress dashboard (/wp-admin/) when a user isn’t logged in. If a user isn’t logged in and they attempt to access the dashboard by requesting /wp-admin/, WP Cerber will return a 404 Error.

    Massive botnet brute force attack? That’s no longer a problem. Citadel mode will automatically be activated for awhile and prevent your site from making further attempts to log in with any username.

    Cerber anti-spam engine

    Anti-spam and anti-bot protection for contact, registration, comments and other forms. WP Cerber anti-spam and bot detection engine now protects all forms on a website. No reCAPTCHA is needed.

    What does “Cerber” mean?

    Cerber is derived from the name Cerberus. In Greek and Roman mythology, Cerberus is a multi-headed dog with a serpent’s tail, a mane of snakes, and a lion’s claws. Nobody can bypass this angry dog. Now you can order WP Cerber to guard the entrance to your site too.
