I am trying to scan a WordPress website with WPSCAN in Kali Linux but an error is happening. Whenever I start the scan WPSCAN runs for 2-3 min and gets paused and after some time and error comes "the host seems to be down" but the website is running completely fine!
I think there is a WAF that is blocking the scanner from scanning that website, but when I did a Port Scanning using NMAP for checking what services are running in that website I found that no WAF is installed on it. Also, I used WAFW00F to check which WAF is there but I found nothing!
So how do I search for that thing which is blocking me from scanning that website? Also please tell me what kind of mechanism is that website using?
the command I am using in wpscan is
wpscan -u https://www.websitename.com
