I am Really Surprised!
People make websites but don’t care about website security!
According to the internet live stats, over 60,000 websites are hacked every day.
That is why it is so important to take some time and at the very least put minimum security on your website!
Ok.
I have no interest to talk about Web Security/ Security Statics but I want to share my few steps with you on how I protect my website from Malware and unwanted spammers.
One thing I need to clear up here is that we are living in an open secret world, so nothing can be protected perfectly, but we can protect our sites with minimum beginner security.

Enough nonsense lets talk 😛

Now, I am going to discuss how I secure my website.  Today, I will share with you Six Easy Ways To Protect WordPress Site .
I will divide the whole Process into 6 Steps.

Protect Your WordPress Site-1

1. Always Update::: Yes. I am ready to update my whole website including plugins and theme. Don’t use any Backdated plugins or theme, or even WordPress main software.

 

2. Secure WordPress Hosting :: Plz use secured web hosting. There is also the web server-level security for which your WordPress host is responsible.
I personally Use ‘Siteground‘ web hosting for my business website. Siteground design and build their servers to run WordPress like a dream. Their exclusive technology gives you the proven performance, reliability, and functionality you need. It is very important that you choose a host that you can trust for your business.

3. Check full website with a plugin :: ‘Anti-Malware Security and Brute-Force Firewall‘ is a great plugin to check website malware and junk code. This plugin works very well.It will take a little bit of time to check your website. After completing its scan of your website it will show your website final situation. If the plugin shows any junk code or unwanted code, you have to fix or remove it.
This is an amazing plugin.

 

4. Hide My WP ::: I use ‘Hide My WP’ plugin on every website . If you use this plugin it will hide your theme info it will also be hard to find your login page info. Almost 30,000/ websites use this plugin.

5. Wordfence ::: ‘Wordfence‘ is another great plugin to protect your site’s vulnerability . If you have a budget then you have to check the premium version. Otherwise, the Wordfence free version works very well. If you want to block an exact country/people or spammer then you need to buy the premium version.Also, you can define user blocking criteria using the settings page.

6. BackUpWordPress :: Yes. We need a Back-Up plugin for our website. Everywhere you need backup support. You need to backup your website on a regular basis. If somehow a hacker breaks our website security then it would be helpful for us if you have a website backup.
