The limitation is visits. We would like that to be noted if you intend to flood the site with more visits then the plan allows for. We promise our customers a quality of service and if you're getting (as an example) 100,000 visits on a Tiny plan, you should expect some performance / reliability degradation.

- 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 assist with cleaning hacked sites to the best of our ability.
