5 Top Tips To Secure Your WordPress Website
Without Plugins
The world knows that WordPress powers more than
35 of websites. The statistics are the highest
of any website design service provider that is
existing in the industry. That makes WordPress a
widely popular software that can be used for
website development and content management. But
with more popularity also comes more risk if your
website is built on
2
WordPress. Why Im saying this is because
WordPress websites are one of the highest hacked
websites across the globe. You would be knowing
that installing a powerful security plugin on
your site helps it to protect from hackers. But
what you might not be knowing is the fact that
you can also secure your WordPress website
without installing plugins. And trust me Im not
going to tell you about any complicated ways to
harden your WordPress security but ones that are
easy to do. If you just follow the tips
mentioned in this article you will be able to
make your site more secure than before. But
before I take you to the compiled list of
WordPress security tips, I would like to tell
you about our award-winning web design company in
Los Angeles that caters to worldwide clients for
web design and development. If you are also
thinking to launch a new website for your
company or just giving it a little makeover,
contact our company SFWPExperts for that. With
that out of the way, lets start the discussion
on how to increase the security of your
WordPress website without using
plugins. 5 Tips To Strengthen Your WordPress Secu
rity Without Plugins 1. Update Your Website
Regularly The first and foremost thing I want to
recommend is update your WordPress installation
as soon as the newer version is released. And not
just that, you should also update your themes
and plugins upon getting its new variants
launched. Performing regular updates alone will
reduce your site hacking chances to a great
extent.

  • Keep in mind that there are always a bunch of
    developers working to find out security issues
    in the WordPress websites. If they see that there
    is some security threat to their websites or it
    is not functioning properly, they come up with
    the security patches and bug fixes in their next
    version. And when you upgrade your site to the
    latest version, automatically the performance of
    your website gets improved and security
    vulnerabilities are fixed.
  • In case you are noticing a sudden drop in traffic
    for the past few days, chances are your website
    has been hacked. So, if you want to verify that
    and recover your site, simply give a ring to our
    web design company in Los Angeles.
  • Apply The Principle of Least Privilege
  • Sometimes giving users too much access to your
    website also affects its security. To overcome
    such problems you can follow the Principle of
    Least Privilege (PoLP) that says users should
    have only as many permissions as required to
    perform their actual work on the site. Allowing
    your users to do anything more than needed may
    lead to your site damage.
  • WordPress offers five distinct user roles to
    nicely assign the required accessibilities to
    each
  • Subscriber
  • Contributor
  • Author
  • Editor
  • Administrator
  • What you need to remember here is that give
    special privileges to only users who look after
    your website administration. Because when you will

4
  • grant admin level access to any user they can
    update your themes and plugins, change the
    settings and manage other areas of your site.
  • Assigning specific roles to your users is quite
    easy you just have to keep in mind that
    whenever you add a new user, select their user
    role from the dropdown list provided there.
  • In case you need guidance or assistance to decide
    different roles for different users, you can
    connect with our web design company in Los
  • Angeles.
  • Edit Your Default Admin Username
  • Another thing that I want to tell you is that
    changing your default admin username is
    extremely important avoiding it could land you
    in a serious trouble. Brute force attacks are
    very common these days and one thats automated
    attack targets the admin user accounts in bulk.
    Such attacks are more focused on finding the
    sites that have missed or forgot to change their
    default admin username.
  • So, to tighten the security of your WordPress
    website, Im going to give you a single simple
    tip. Create a new admin user with a new username
    because WordPress doesnt allow users to change
    their username. Once you have done that, log in
    with the new admin username and password and
    then delete the previous admin profile.
  • If you want to add extra layers of security to
    your WordPress website but dont know how to
    perform that, remember our Los Angeles web design
    company is at your disposal.
  • Create Strong passwords For Admin Level Users

5
Using a strong password for entering the backend
of your WordPress website is extremely necessary
for maintaining the highest level of security.
WordPress is such an intelligent software that
whenever a new user registers, it generates
hard-to-crack passwords automatically. However if
you dont like that, you can still change it to
your liking. But the main thing is you need to
be very very careful while creating the
passwords for your high level users such as
admins and editors. Their password should be
such that none should be able to guess what it
actually is. If your admin or editors have a
doubt about how they can remember such
complicated passwords, tell them to use a
password manager software like LastPass or
Dashlane. 5. Keep Exporting Your Web
Content Taking this measure is extremely
necessary especially if you are running a blog
site. For owners of such sites, their content is
the most valuable asset and losing that could
lead to business collapse. Just so you know many
types of attacks are just done to steal your
website information including your posts, pages,
images, and others. Therefore I recommend you to
keep a copy of your web content in your local
drives or the best save it into a cloud storage.
Another way to deal with such a situation is to
export your content by going to Tools gt Export in
your WordPress admin section. Once there, click
on the Download Export File button and then
WordPress will create an XML file for your web
content. You can download that file whenever you
need it or upload the same XML file when you
lose your content. Final Thoughts On Your
WordPress Website Security

Website security is a broad topic but a common
issue that every website owner wants to get
covered. Above I have discussed five proven tips
to secure your WordPress website from any
malicious actor. If you follow each of them
carefully, its likely no one would be able to
gain control over your website. The security of
your WordPress website isnt only important to
keep your details safe but also that of your
customers. If they come to know that your
website is completely safe to use, they will make
purchases from your website with full
confidence. Because at the end of the day
customers want to share their debit card or
credit card details only on the trusted
platforms. Do you have any questions about the
