** The above lists are showing what our support team can provide you with support for. For example, when we say that we don’t provide you with support for third-party security plugins. That doesn’t mean you can’t use those plugins, it’s just that we don’t provide you with support for any issues you have with those plugins. You’re free to use any plugin/theme on our system, as long as that theme/plugin doesn’t have any security issues.
