    Hi guys,

    To be honest, I am actually quite new in WHM so I don't know how to configure my idea so I kindly ask for your help.

    I would like to configure a captcha for users hitting /wp-admin/ (and/or other urls that are victim of spambots). This could be done with mod_rewrite (I guess so), so it should be easy.

    This is what it should looks like (picture below). Does anyone have experience with making something similar? Thanks!

    There are plenty of wordpress plugins for this sort of thing:

    As for other URLs, modsecurity and a good firewall can be very helpful.

    Well, I want to provide an out-of-the-box solution for my customers. Many customers install their Wordpress installation with Softaculous. They don't know anything about security. Managing it directly from our side (e.g. by asking them to fill in a captcha) would decrease the amount of spambots and hacking attempts.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Yes, as Infopro mentioned, it's likely a good idea to review the plugins offered by WordPress. It's not something that's offered through cPanel/WHM.

    Thank you.
