How to protect WordPress from being Hacked

Hackers are now hacking many WordPress sites so it is necessary to take some action on our blog from being hacked.

How WordPress can be hacked

By Our Custom URL login :

Actually when we install WordPress it automatically give us /wp-admin.php and /wp-login.php for loging in to our WordPress Dashboard. And 88% of WordPress users actually use this link for login in. But we can also change it by a WordPress plugin names LockerPress. It is for WordPress security only. You can create your own URL for login in to WordPress Dashboard and hackers can not get rid of it. But it has some problems also by using this plugin we can not add authors to our blog I mean we can add but it is not possible to give them the login link because we have created it just for security reasons. If we give authors login link then what is the use of LockerPress plugin. So I myself use Login link which is given by WordPress.

By our username: In the installation time of WordPress script there is a field for username where many of our bloggers use the username “admin” which is not good for us. By putting this username Hackers has only to guess the password thats it. So we do not have to use the username admin there. We have to use something typical username.

Hope this tutorial will help to understand how to secure WordPress from being Hacked. If you have any problem then just comment here.  Thanks for reading.
