First Steps

The first thing that you'll need to do is setup your public and secret key pair. This is used to configure the Wordpress plugin to report attacks and provide block information. See the steps below:

Login to your account and select "Servers" from the navigation menu.


Enter a name for the server/WordPress site being protected, and click Add New Server.


Save the generated public key and secret key in a safe place. These will be used later in the Wordpress plugin or server configuration. Note: The secret key will not be shown again for security purposes.

TIP - If you misplace your secret key you will need to remove this key pair and generate a new one.
