Zero Spam

We hate spam as much as you do, so we created a solution to stop it.

Spam is an invasive disease for anyone that has a site. No matter the platform, if you allow any kind of user input, you're likely having to battle it — wasting valuable time and resources that could be better used.

Stop spam on your site

The Challenge

Put an end, if not help greatly mitigate malicious and spammy visitors.

Our digital natives were having to spend entirely too much time helping clients prevent and manage spam. This was especially a problem with websites that ran on popular CMS like WordPress or Drupal. So we decided to move from the defensive to the offensive and built one of the world's largest community-powered malicious and spam detection network.

It began more than 10 years ago with the development of WordPress Zero Spam. The success was immediate and quickly became one of the most popular spam prevention plugins on the WordPress marketplace. Demand was so strong to bring it to more wider audiences, we decided to found the Zero Spam community-based spam detection network.

The solution

A community-powered malicious IP detection network.

After collecting over 10 years of valuable spam detection data with over 2 million records, it was time to share it with the world. We launched Zero Spam in 2020 giving both site owners and developers access and allowing them to take their spam fight to the spammers.

With it's easy-to-implement API, Zero Spam allows any website and developer to take advantage of the community-powered database of spammers so they can be stopped before ever gaining access. As the owner, you still have control, we just provide the data for you to make a decision that's best for your situation.

The result

The many are more powerful than the one.

We can't speak for the users of Zero Spam, but based on what people are saying, it's a huge and ongoing success — the fight against spam never ends. Our client sites that utilize Zero Spam have seen more than a 98% reduction in spam. The best part, the longer it's used, the smarter it get's and the better at protection you from malicious IPs.
