At Brixly, we prioritize the security of your websites. As part of our shared hosting environment, we have implemented cpGuard's Captcha verification feature to protect against automated threats and bot attacks. This article will explain why you might encounter Captcha prompts and the rationale behind this security measure.

Why You See Captcha Prompts: 

Captcha verification is a security feature that distinguishes human users from automated systems. On our shared hosting platform, cpGuard selectively activates Captcha protection for certain URLs that are more susceptible to bot traffic and abuse.

The Verification Process: 

When you or your site visitors navigate to a URL that is under Captcha protection, cpGuard may prompt for Captcha verification. This typically happens when the request comes from an IP address that cpGuard does not recognize as having a known protection status.

The Purpose of Captcha Challenges: 

The main goal of these Captcha challenges is to prevent unauthorized access and automated attacks, which can compromise the security and performance of your website. By verifying that the user is legitimate, we can maintain a safer environment for all our clients.

Minimal User Impact: 

We understand that Captcha prompts can be an inconvenience. Therefore, cpGuard is configured to minimize the frequency of these challenges. Once an IP address passes the Captcha verification, it will not be asked to verify again for several days.

Centralized Management: 

The management of Captcha verifications is handled by the cpGuard cloud, ensuring that the system is always up-to-date and effective against the latest threats. This centralized approach also helps in mitigating the impact of distributed bot attacks on our servers.


The Captcha verification process is a critical component of our security strategy on the shared hosting environment. It helps protect your website from automated threats without placing undue burden on legitimate users. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in keeping our platform secure.
