    This article will help you to understand how to protect wordpress website from hackers.

    Security is seriously important to a website. While the center establishment of WordPress is easily accessible and user friendly, the more you add on top of it via plugins, themes, and custom code, the more likely it is to be hacked. Here are the ways on how to protect WordPress website from hackers.

    1. Keep WordPress up-to-date

    Something so small and easy can have a big impact on site security. Whenever you login to the dashboard and see that “Update available” banner, click it and update your site. If you’re worried about something breaking, make a backup before installing it.

    1. Always Backup your website

    It depends on how often your website gets updated, but we suggest at least a weekly backup. There are many WordPress plugins that can help you.

    1. Change default configuration

    Hackers can easily know where to log in to get into your admin area if you don’t change your default.

    1. Limit Login Attempts

    WordPress plugin called “Limit Login Attempts” enables you to limit the number of failed login attempts and even ban an IP for a specified number of hours. You can select how many failed login attempts you will allow, how long they’re locked out, and how many lockouts it will take to issue a temporary IP ban.

    1. Don’t Use “admin” as Your Username

    Most hackers are trying to get your password by forcing to log in to your administrator username. On the other hand, if you change your username to something unique, that will protect your website immediately.
