“FAQ” post for Frequently Asked (and pre-sales) Questions about Banhammer Pro.

Will this plugin slow down my site?

Nope. Banhammer is super fast because it does all the “heavy lifting” (e.g., Geo/IP lookups) while the admin (you) are viewing logged results via the Armory. So you get mission-critical data without slowing down normal site traffic.

What is the difference between Banhammer, Blackhole, and BBQ?

Great question. Here is a summary:

  • BBQ Pro — Blazing fast firewall that protects against general threats and attacks
  • Banhammer Pro — Enables you to monitor site traffic and ban any suspicious targets
  • Blackhole Pro — Traps and blocks bad bots secretly behind the scenes
Is Banhammer Pro Multisite compatible?

Due to licensing restrictions, Banhammer Pro works on an individual, per-site basis. That means the plugin can be activated on any given site on a Multisite network, but network-wide activation is not supported at this time.

Do you offer any other security plugins?

Yes, check out BBQ Pro for super-fast WordPress firewall security, and , and Blackhole Pro to trap bad bots in a virtual black hole. I also have a video course on WordPress security, which provides more plugin recommendations and tons of tips and tricks.
