How to Secure WordPress Website & Blog

1. Changing the default username and password

If you used SiteGround’s* one-click WordPress installations, chances are that you already set up your username and password. It might be obvious advise for some of you, but please do NOT use username “Admin” and password “password”. Come up with a different username and password for your site

2. Wordfence plugin

Wordfence is a plugin that I personally use to secure my WordPress site. It has a premium option, but the free one is sufficient enough to get your site secured 😉

3. Two-factor authentication plugin

I must admit it took me a while to finally get my hands on it and set up a Google’s two-factor authentication on my website (not because it’s a hard thing to do, it’s because I kept procrastinating that God knows why).  I’ve been using Google Authenticator app on my phone for other important accounts. For my WordPress admin account, I picked miniOrange 2 Factor Authentication plugin.

4. Akismet plugin

If you have a blog on your site, you’re probably hoping to get genuine comments under your posts, right? One of the ways to ensure your WordPress website is secured is to install anti-spam blog comments plugin. I recommend using the Akismet plugin

What’s great about securing your site is that you only need to set it up once and then you can just work on your site, sit back, relax and publish your new post. All of the methods presented in this post are FREE, so you don’t need to be afraid that securing your site would be another business expense 😉

Is your WordPress website secured?
