13) I cannot log in to the control panel of my site. I receive a "Brute Force Protection" error message.

We have many security measures on our servers to ensure that your website is hosted on a reliable and secure server. One of these security measures is the blocking of an IP address from which many failed login attempts are made. This is done because many hackers try to guess the password for specific accounts by trying out many possible passwords. If you receive this error message it means that you had tried to log in with the wrong password many times. Please contact us if you receive this message and provide us with your IP so we can unblock is, and reset passwords where necessary.
