Is Wordpress Safety Of Any Importance To You?If you have a WordPress blog or website, WordPress security must be an issue for you. I'm sure you must have heard about hackers attacking blogs and websites of other people. The damage done by them can be enormous, especially when the particular blog was high page ranked, displaying high in search engines and profitable. It is not the only type of websites attacked by hackers. The reasoning behind their acts can't be explained as logical. They will destroy it for fun. I know stories of people who one day, instead of their website saw a short note informing them that their website has been blocked by Google due to the thread it carries to other internet users. It was a result of hacker attack, who made changes to the website.
I back my blogs using a free plugin WP DB Backup up. If anything happens I will always restore my blog. I use my site to be scanned by WP Security Scan plugin and requests to be blocked by WordPress Firewall to fix malware problems free.
Strong passwords - Do your best to use a strong password, alpha-numeric, with upper and lower case and special characters. Easy to remember passwords are also easy to guess!
Exclude pages - This plugin adds a checkbox,"include this page in menus", which can be checked by default. If you uncheck it, the page won't appear in any listings of pages (which includes, and is ordinarily restricted to, your webpage navigation menus).
Now we are getting into things. You have to rename it to config.php and modify the document config-sample.php, when you install WordPress. You will need to deploy the database facts there.
When your site is new, you do not always think about needing security but you our website do need to protect your investment and yourself. Having a site go down and not having the ability to restore it quickly can mean a loss of customers who probably won't remember to search for your website again later and can't find you. Don't let this happen to you. Back up your site after you get it started, as the website is operational, and schedule regular backups for as long. That way, you will have WordPress security and peace of mind.
