Security too is something where you should focus upon because if your site won’t be secured then anyone can come and take it down, thereby destroying your years of hard work.
Don’t worry because we have compiled the list of Top 5 Security Tips to Protect WP Blog.
Moving wp_config File
The wp_config file is the most important file on a blog and it should be held really responsibly. It’s the wp_config file only which holds the crucial data like your site’s database username and password, so once anyone finds it, he/she can easily login to your site’s database and make heavy changes; so move your blog’s wp_config file as soon as possible.
Many people install WP plugins on their blogs, but most of them forget to keep them updating and later find their blog defaced. Updating plugins is necessary because big and small vulnerabilities are patched in those updates.
Hosting too matters a lot in security. If your site is hosted on a vulnerable server then anyone can easily access it by just cracking one site on the same server on which your site is hosted. Try getting your blog a secured hosting. Hostgator is a good choice.
Most important thing is to backup your whole site’s database, so if you find anything suspicious floating in your site’s database then you can easily restore your site. Backing up your site is the first thing which you should do.
Avoiding piracy can help you a lot. I know pirated things are free, generally, but they can lead to catastrophe for your blog. Some pirated themes are available on web, they are free but all of them have backdoors in them. So if you will install those themes then crackers can easily use that backdoor to make an entry.
