5 actionable tips for a faster, more secured WordPress site.
1. Web Host Provider
- What security measures does your hosting company have to help prevent attacks?
- What measures do they have to help you recover your site if attacked?
- Do they offer automated backups to safeguard important content?
- How often do they perform website maintenance?
- If you have questions or your site has a problem how responsive is their support?
- Do they have a telephone number you can call and speak to a real person on or instant live chat?
- Do they communicate the problem in terms you can understand?
2. Content Delivery Network (CDN)
3. Caching Plugin
4. Optimize Images
5. Strong Passwords & Username
- Create your own password. Use a combination of letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, and symbols.
- Only use your WordPress password on WordPress. Create separate passwords for social media or email.
- Change your password every 3 months.
- Avoid default “admin” username. Instead use your first name and last initial, your first and last name or a nickname.
- Hide your username. Use a different name displayed for your username and public nickname. Using a different public nickname increases obscurity.
