Secure Your WordPress Blog
Security should be the first priority for your blog to make it working fine and properly because a few hours downtime will destroy your website ranking so we should always keep an eye on security of our blogs. And that’s why I am going to share my tips to secure WordPress blog as much as we can.
Complex Admin Username and Password
So here it is the first step, you should always first change the default username and password for admin access and do not use admin admin for it I know there will be many blogs who have this username and password because people do not really care about it they just let it go but you must change the default username and password and also try to make a complex password like using small and capital alphabets and also numbers with one or two special characters, this is what we can call good strong password so that no one will be able to crack it because it will take uncountable years to crack it.
Password Protected Admin Directory
And this is very helpful because it works like double security you know it actually helps us to protect any directory in the root directory of our website but there is no need to protect any other directory with password so we should use this feature, it is available in the cPanel you can search there password protected directories so I was saying that we can this use this feature to protect wp-admin folder for double security so do not miss this feature you must use it.
Limit Access by IP Address
This is also a very good step to make your WordPress blog much stronger not to be hacked. You will be able to access admin panel if you are using the IP address which is added in white list so if you want to know how to do it then go here for more information and tutorial about this security step.
