Check them out on how to secure a WordPress website! WP500 HOW TO SECURE YOUR WORDPRESS WEBSITE Point 01 Stay Up to Date Update your website to the latest WordPress version is essential for your website security (including plugins and themes). Point 02 Remove unnecessary Themes & Plugins If you have an extra theme and plugin, remove all other unused ones. They not only use up your storage space, but they can also appear as a vulnerability to hackers and more. Point 03 Monitor your Files If you want the extra security of website files via a plugin such as Wordfence or iTheme Security. Point 04 Do Backup Regularly Doing regular Backups is also a great move. Do backups of your website on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis and give your website a second life. Point 05 Conceal Admin Details Do not use the default login path and username (Like your email and wp Password are the same). Use complex passwords that have a combination of uppercase/lowercase, symbols, and numbers and Reset your Password regularly ********** Point 06 Use Trusted & Secure Hosting Use a trusted hosting provider with strong security measures. They can follow all security criteria. SUBTITLE 07 Use SSL to Encrypt Data Select an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate is one smart move to secure the admin panel.
