QUESTION: Will Hide My WP Ghost help my WP sites against all bots in general? I have a problem with my sites reaching the allowed inode quota due to bots. Will this be a solution for this issue?
Yes, once you change the common WordPress paths and hide them from bots, it will show a 404 error instead of loading the server resources.
What Hide My WP Ghost can’t stop are manually-triggered actions on your website, such as:
- filling the comment form and sending you comments.
But it will stop the automated posts to the old wp-comments-post.php file.
You can use Hide My WP Ghost together with a plugin like Wordfence to boost your site’s security by enabling both proactive protection and website integrity protection.
