    exploiting vulnerabilities in their hosting
    platform.
  • You can create a solid first line of defense by
    choosing a dependable hosting service for your
    website.

    can be exposed to breaches caused by entities

Add Password Protection To The Admin Directory
  • Most hacking attempts are directed towards the
    admin area of your website.
  • It can be secured by adding password protection
    on the server-side.
  • This will block anyone trying to gain
    unauthorized access to your admin section.

Limit The Number Of Login Attempts
  • Limiting login attempts must be among the first
    few steps of your WordPress security plan.
  • By default, the CMS allows people to try to login
    as many times as they want to.
  • This feature is manipulated by unethical elements
    who use it to try multiple combinations of
    usernames and passwords.

Remove Default Admin Username And Choose A Strong
Password
  • The top usernames that are targeted by hackers
    are admin and Admin.
  • By default, every installation is assigned
    username as admin.
  • This makes the job for anyone targeting an
    interface easy as the person has to crack only
    the password.

Add An Extra Security Layer With Two-Factor
Authentication
  • You can provide an extra layer of security to
    your website with two-factor authentication
    (2FA).
  • This means that people will have to provide an
    additional code apart from the correct username
    and password to gain access.
  • It will be pertinent to hire a competent
    WordPress developer to do the needful so that no
    issues arise during the execution of the plan.
