Shared hosting server, WildWildWest and WordPress sites

While investigating performance issues on our shared hosting server, WildWildWest, we have recognized a brute force attack focused on sites utilizing WordPress. Currently, no sites have been affected and to help mitigate the attack, our Platform Administration Team have disabled the “wp-admin” login for 24 hours.

Once we enable wp-admin logins, we recommend that you change your default user (admin) to something more unique and reset your password to something more secure.

If you have any questions, please contact our support team at 1-877-215-HOST (4678) or submit an email by logging into

Thank you for your patience.
