Mod Security (CWAF), hardened PHP and CloudLinux, no plain FTP allowed, SSH only with keys. All servers are thoroughly hardened and reviewed for security buy 3rd party before being put into production. If a website is hacked and has to be disabled we only disable the site/s affected not the account. We do help to some extent in cleaning but it is best effort and based on available time. Sites hosting illegal content, phishing, spamming etc are immediately disabled. We have some ddos detection and mitigation at a small level through CSF and Litespeed.

At the server edge we deploy a dynamic firewall, automatically updated based upon detected threats. A webapp firewall is updated daily to actively block malicious access attempts, and includes a variety of WordPress-specific rules. Virus/exploit scanning is run on any changed file, with automatic quarantining and proactive responses to compromised accounts. Virtual containers separate customers and hide the real root filesystem from user accounts. Various WordPress-specific security actions are taken, such as brute-force mitigation, automatic TimThumb updating, basic comment-spam protection, and more, updated as new WordPress exploits emerge. We will help restore hacked sites, either via manual and automated cleaning of the site, or restoration of a backup, depending upon the situation.

No bandwidth limit defined on the SiteGround.com site. We do not have a bandwidth limit on the site and if a client is not reaching our other CPU limits the bandwidth is not something we limit users for. Nowadays bandwidth is not a big problem and more often websites need more CPU, more memory and more I/O operations available.
