            We have serious doubts this function can really increase server security:
            1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts
            2) Arbitrary login name adds very little guess-complexity to a proper password. If you have concerns for your login brute-forced – add another 5-7 characters into your password and feel safe.

            As changed login name is still very likely to be some sort of vocabulary word or derived from your other account name – this function would only give a false sense of better security. Your security strength is in complex password, not in a complex login name. If you have one good password, you don’t need to treat login as your “second password” – one good password is enough.

            As for concerns that default password requirement is set in “weak”, that fail2ban module is not…

              @Anonymous
              Varnish is actually very popular among high-traffic websites:

              "Varnish is used by a great number of high-profile, high-traffic websites including online newspaper sites such as The New York Times, BBC, The Guardian, The Hindu, social media and content sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, Tumblr and many more. Of the Top 10K sites in the web, around a tenth use the software." Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varnish_(software)

              This thread also lacks an simple explanation why Varnish would be useful (or I read past it, in that case, sorry).

              In stead of running PHP code every time a page loads, Varnish lets Apache run the PHP code once en stores the website Apache produced in memory. The next time this saved page is shown, without the need of running PHP code. This way a server could serve a lot more pageviews per second.

              Webshops and such are tricky, but it's very possible to get those to run without problems with Varnish.
