Yes, WP Cerber for WordPress is a free, open source software and you can use it under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) Version 2. You can easily install it from the WordPress repository. Follow this instruction.

Can WP Cerber protect a website from DDoS attacks?

Nope. This plugin protects your website from brute force attacks or distributed brute force attacks. By default, WordPress allows unlimited login attempts with any of these methods: login form, XML-RPC request, or by sending special cookies. This allows passwords to be cracked with relative ease via brute force attack. To prevent from such a bad situation install WP Cerber.

Is there any WordPress plugin that can protect a website from DDoS attacks?

Nope. This hard and complex task cannot be done by using a WordPress plugin or any other software installed on a web server. You can protect your website from DDoS attacks by using special hardware. Read more: Brute-force, DoS, and DDoS attacks – what’s the difference?

What does “Cerber” means?

This is a contraction from Cerberus. In the Greek and Roman mythology, Cerberus is a multi-headed dog with a serpent’s tail, a mane of snakes, and a lion’s claws. Nobody can bypass that angry dog. Now you can order WP Cerber to guard the entrance to your WordPress.

What tools do you use to develop and test the plugin?
