Hardening WordPress Security

WordPress is an open source software and sometimes hackers may use security exploits to compromise your site. Therefore, we’ve created a few video tutorials to help you strengthening your WordPress security.

BulletProof Security Plugin

The first video is about BulletProof Security plugin configuration. This plugin is extremely important for protecting your website from brute force attack!

In particular, we also demonstrated how to whitelist IP address(es) so that only the people using the registered IP address(es) can access to the admin dashboard of your WordPress website. This can greatly reduce the chances of having brute force attacks. To do so, you will need to insert some simple codes (found from WordPress Codex page). Below is the code you need:

<Files wp-login.php>
# Block access to wp-admin.
order deny,allow
deny from all
# Add IP to Whitelist
allow from 111.222.333.444
</Files>

Please note that 111.222.333.444 represents your IP address. You will need to replace this with your own IP address when you customize your BulletProof settings.

After watching the first video, you will know where to put the above code and how to whitelist IP address for accessing to your admin panel.

Sucuri Security SiteCheck Malware Scanner

The second video tutorial is about Sucuri Security plugin.

Sucuri Security SiteCheck Malware Scanner checks your WordPress site for malware, spam, blacklisting and other security issues like .htaccess redirects, hidden eval code, etc.

Captcha Plugin

The third video tutorial is about captcha plugin

This plugin significantly reduce the chances of spammers attacking your website by asking a math question when submitting a request to your website (e.g. visitors are asked “what’s the answer for 2+3” when leaving comment). The plugin can work on comment section as well as the login page.

WordPress Multisite Explained

WordPress features a powerful function called “Multisite”. Enabling multisite allows users to manage multiple WordPress websites from one WordPress installation. Each website in a network is independent, but the WordPress admin can modify the settings so that plugins and themes can be shared among the websites. When there are updates available for the shared theme and plugin, the site admin only needs to update the corresponding elements once instead of managing them individually. By disabling the network function, the site admin can isolate the plugins and themes access across all websites. To learn more the features and installation of WordPress Multisite, watch this video for full details.

Creating a WordPress Web Page with Page Builder Plugin

WordPress is one of the most popular CMS platforms in today’s web design industry, largely because of the vast selection of available themes, free and commercial.

Tweaking a WordPress theme often requires coding experience. But, with Page Builder plugin, you can create responsive column layouts using WordPress widgets. This plugin features the “drag-and-drop” interface so that it helps you precisely place the content wherever you want on your website. With Page Builder, you can simply customize your own WordPress theme.

How to Change Username in WordPress

Many users created their usernames as “admin” when they first installed WordPress. But for security purposes, you should avoid using “admin” as your username. However, by default, WordPress does not allow users to manually change the usernames after the setup of the account. So, if you have already used “admin” as your username, watch this video to see the alternative way to change the username in WordPress.

Brute Force Attack Prevention Tips

A Brute Force Attack is when a hacker tries many combinations of usernames and passwords until they succeed in guessing the right combination. Due to the fact that at any one time there may be many concurrent login attempts occurring on your site via malicious automated robots, this also has a negative impact on your website load time and performance. Therefore, we highly recommend WordPress users to install this comprehensive plugin, Lockdown WP Admin.

Lockdown WP Admin features hiding WordPress Admin (/wp-admin/) when a user isn’t logged in. If a user isn’t logged in and attempts to access WP Admin directly, the WordPress site will return a 404 error page. Users can can also rename the login URL. We’ve created this video to walk through the configuration steps for this plugin.
