WordPress Website Security » Overview

Finally, discover how to secure your WordPress site… Even if you know nothing about security.

This specific training course was designed to help you understand how to secure and protect your valuable WordPress site.

In a recent study done by Sucuri, around 90% of all the hacked content management systems that they investigated and helped fix in 2018 were WordPress sites.

If you rely on your Web site for your business — whether that means for marketing purposes, business operations, or anything important — protecting your asset is crucial.

If you haven’t done it yet, then you need to do it.

Why?

Just like offline businesses, thieves can break into your business. Except when it comes to online security, you may not even know that there’s an intruder in your site or using your site until sometimes months or years later.

This is why it’s essential to be proactive.

Note: WordPress sites don’t get hacked because of WordPress original code, but due to backdoors from third-party code.

But what do backdoors mean? If you’re not tech-savvy, what are some quick and straightforward ways to secure your WordPress Web site safely?

Introducing… WordPress Website Security, 8-part video course. Here’s a list of this 8-part video series in more detail.

Video #1 — Introduction

Let’s talk a little about WordPress. You’ll also get a bird’s-eye view of the course and how it’s laid out. More importantly, what you need to get started.

Video #2 — Backdoors

Understanding how back doors open to allow a hacker into your Web site is crucial. This way, you can protect yourself and have a plan to implement.

Video #3 — WordPress Hosting

Unbelievably, your Web hosting plays a crucial part in your WordPress site security. We’ll dive into why that’s the case and how you can use that to your advantage. We’ll also go over certain Web hosting companies that have done an excellent job at protecting their client’s Web sites.

Video #4 — Brute-Force Attacks on WP-Admin Login Page

One of the many lines of defense is to protect your WordPress admin login page. The reason you want to do this is simply because the way people often get into your site is by trying to brute-force their way into your login page. By brute-force, we mean computers and/or hackers will try and guess what your password and username are.

Video #5 — Different Security Plugins

There are hundreds of different WordPress security plug-ins out there. The question is which one of them is going to protect you from various attacks? This video will precisely cover that.

Video #6 — 2-Step Authorization

Another line of defense is to protect your login page with a two-step authorization process. I’ll show you how to do this in this video.

Video #7 — Hotlinking

Another line of defence is to protect your files such as your images, your other media files, and more. Know what we mean by protecting your data is to protect them from what we call hotlinking. This is when an outside source or outside Web site decides to take your data, such as your images and post it on their site. What ends up happening is it ends-up using your bandwidth that you’re paying to your Web host. That might not seem important, but if a hacker decided to send hundreds of thousands of people to that image, it could incur expensive costs to you.

Video #8 — Password Protection

Creating a strong password may seem like common sense, but you’d be surprised to know how many people don’t adhere to this process. In this video, we’ll discuss how you can not only go about creating a stronger password, but how you can utilize password protection apps to help you remember exactly what they are. In addition to that, when you create your WordPress username and password, there are certain things you want to avoid using to prevent brute-force attacks.
