If your website is WordPress based it is very important to come up with a systematic plan to ensure your site is as secure as it can be. You want customers to feel safe doing business on your site. It is an important business practice to do everything that you can to protect your interests as well as your customer’s interests.
- When it comes to your WordPress site, security is critical if you want your site to last. It isn’t a product — it’s a process!
- Although manual methods are available if you study the official documentation, the preferred way to harden security of your WordPress site is through pre-made security plugins.
- In addition to hardening, other ways to ensure that your WordPress site is secure are to hide the admin username, require a password, make sure all plugins are up to date, and remove all unused plugins and themes.
