    Hello BHW

    I've recently signed up with a new Italian hosting provider and i've noticed something really curious in his Terms and Conditions:

    - " Yoast SEO Plugin and Yet Another Related Post Plugin are not permitted to use in our hosting. Every member catched using this plugins will be immediatly removed from our hosting"


    I've never met something like that...can someone tell me why ?

    Maybe it takes "too much" server resources?

    Maybe they've got a bone to pick with the developer? The online marketing community seems so tight knit, there's bound to be a rivalry or two ;).

    Sad hosting provider, the reason behind this issue is related to resources.
    Do you've any allocated resources for your plan?
    Often, the crawling is performed and this plugin requires heavy resources along with Jetpack.

    I never heard of such things. There scripts/plugins for Wordpress or other CMS that require much more resources, so I don't get the point on why that is not allowed.

    You should ask them directly, because this is interesting.

    Both of those seem to be database intensive plugins - meaning any time you load a page, WP has to do more database queries than usual.

    Then again, you should probably move away from your shared host as soon as the business can afford it and get something like a VPS, DO droplet or EC2 instance.

    Sounds fishy too me. Remember you are paying them, not the other way around. If they wont allow it, tell them to GTFO and get another host company.

    This is ridiculous.
    DO NOT PAY THEM ANYTHING!

    Seriously there are better hosts out there,
    Bluehost for example, great for beginners.
    & its affordable...
    and they don't tell you what you can and cannot do.

    They are NOT the boss of you.

    Show em what you got!

    Hmmm, good and well meant advice, but Bluehost can be very slow on shared hosting and they don't allow adult (not saying the OP has an adult site BTW).

    I haven't got their shared hosting so I dunno.
    I only have one domain with them and hosting
    so far, excellent.
    Aside from their terrible customer service...
    One of the guys were being so rude.
    They have good prices tho.

    I also use 1&1, godaddy and d9client.

    1&1 is good.

    D9 client has excellent customer support except
    I just saw that they posted my name and address online? wtf?

    Move your domain(s) from hosting provider, that's unacceptable. I'll pick bargain hosting providers for my PBNs now only.

    I'm with everyone else on this thread: I'd switch hosts. I pay about $20 a month for my hosting. I know that's pricey for some people but I get excellent customer service and I've never had my site go down on me since I joined. It's a shared hosting plan but there are a limited number of people on the server so I get more resources. And my host has never complained about Yoast or told me I couldn't use it. Although I didn't know that Yoast uses up a lot of resources. You learn something new every day.

    Anyway, tl;dr: switch hosts.

    Haha doesn't really matter. Just use another one and move on.

    Every minute wasted thinking about something like this is another minute you could've been working on your business and using your brain's thinking fuel for something more productive :)

    I have had the same problem with my host. I just shifted to new host. Shared hosting limitations vary from host to host, can't do anything about that. Better find a suitable host.

    Even though you are happy with the price and hosting you should still find another hosting company. First, no one should tolerate rude customer service in any way, shape, or form for any service they are paying for. Secondly, if they are restricting the use of those plugins because they are straining resources who knows what could happen in the future. There is nothing stopping them from tacking on more restrictions at anytime. Could you imagine losing a well developed site because your hosting company boots you for violating their ToS by using some random plugin? I know switching is inconvenient but it might save you a huge future headache.

    First, dump that hosting, and second - dump the plugin. It's too heavy anyway. Create robots.txt and .htaccess file manually, and grab any lightweight meta description plugin - you don't really need anything else.
