  • Backup your site

  • Hide your WordPress version
  • Choose secure passwords
  • Use secure usernames too (do not use “Admin”)
  • Move you login page
  • Hide your username (your login name)
  • Limit login attempts
  • Use a secure host
  • Disable the theme and plugin editors
  • Add and configure one or more security plugins

I've been building and maintaining websites since 1997 and building and supporting similar hypertext-driven software since 1987. I've done maintenance, support, and maintenance for physical and digital systems since 1981. And no, I still haven't seen it all but by now I usually know where to look.
