The main function of the CleanTalk to provide owners and administrators of websites reliable tool to protect their websites from spam and spambots. Hosting Package allows you to protect plenty/many websites from spam bots without using access key at once. Hosting Package is made primarily for Hosting Companies who want to protect their customers from spam.
How does it work?
In this case anti-spam service uses IP-addresses to identify customer’s license.
Plugins installed on web servers, sends requests with parameters into the CleanTalk Cloud. Service analyzes senders IP and parameters. If this is a visitor, the comment will be published. If it's a spam bot, then CleanTalk blocks these requests.
To setup Hosting Package:
- Register to the service
- Go to your Control Panel and switch to the Hosting Dashboard
- Follow the instruction and add your IP-address
- Install and activate the anti-spam plugins on each website.
Depending on your needs we offer 3 ways of using Hosting Package:
1. Without Using Access Key
Just install anti-spam plugins on each website. After adding IP in CleanTalk Control Panel, all websites from this IP will be protected from spam.
As this Package is meant for bulk usage and for processing clients' spam check requests based on IP address, the Package lacks some features, for instance:
No personal settings and private blacklists. No spam records details in your Anti-Spam Log, counter of total checks is available only.
No weekly Spam Report.
If these personal features are important for your customers, then you should use annually renewed or Unlimited Websites Package.
Of course, on the Hosting Package it's possible to create CleanTalk profiles for your customers as well so they would have all CleanTalk Service features. There are several ways of creating your customers' profiles in the CleanTalk Service.
2. Separate Access Keys For Each Website
You can inform your customers, that they can register their own CleanTalk profiles themselves and get their own access key. Then they can use personal settings, get anti-spam reports and stats.
You can create CleanTalk profiles for your customers yourself and give them profile credentials to log in. Please, use delegating rights to make it right.
3. One Access Key For All WPMU Websites
You can use the same access key for all websites. In this case anti-spam statistics, black lists and your CleanTalk settings will be identical for all websites. Register to the service and choose a one website package. Copy the access key and put it in each CleanTalk plugin in each website. All settings will be the same for each website.
Be accurate, because in this way you will have an access to all customers requests. Use this way only if you are the owner of this websites. You have to inform your customers about it!
