SiteGround Anti-Bot system

Most of you will be aware that I recently moved from an American hosting company to Siteground, and I am still finding out about how they run things.

It is safe for you to go ahead and complete the challenge. A successful completion means the IP address is added to a whitelist, and it won’t be challenged again.

There is more information here.
