2. Install WordPress Updates Notifier:

5. Chose a secure hosting provider:

Do not choose to a web host because it is cheap. Saving money may cost you dearly in the long run. Chose a secure host, a trusted one. This criteria is a bit complicated.

6. Choose a Strong Password:

Disable remember password in your browser settings or at least disable it for your WordPress login. Choose a strong password, a combination of Letters (Capital + Small), Numbers and Special Characters. Use something weird that only you know. Change your website log in password often.

7. Hide Username from the author archive URL:

Hackers may get to know your username via author archive URL and for them it’s almost half battle won. Change User_nicename entry in your website database.

The best security for your website is you. Keep it up-to-date and secure. Do not log in from public computers. In case it’s urgently necessary, change the login password immediately as soon as you can. Also use a good proprietary class antivirus to secure your computer from hackers.
