There are millions of blogs all around the Internet. Money is being made by some people and some do not. Most of the bloggers use WordPress at the moment. Regardless of what kind of person you're, you need to make certain that your blog is protected.
I back my blogs regularly using a plugin WP DB Backup up. If anything happens I will always restore my blog. I use WP Security Scan free plugin to scan my blog and WordPress Firewall to block requests that are suspicious-looking to secure your wordpress website.
Don't depend on your Web host - Many men and women rely on their web host to"do all that technical stuff for me", not realizing that sometimesthey don't! Far better to have the responsibility lie with you, instead of out.
In case you ever wish to migrate your site elsewhere, such as a new web host, you'd have the ability to pull this off without a hitch, and also without needing to disturb your old site until the new one was set up and ready to roll.
As I (our untrue Joe the Hacker) know, people have far too many usernames and passwords to remember. You have got Twitter, Facebook, your online banking, LinkedIn, two site logins, FTP, internet hosting, see here now etc. accounts that all come with logins and passwords you need to remember.
However, I advise that you set up the Login LockDown plugin rather than any.htaccess controls. Login requests will be ceased by that from being permitted from a certain IP-ADDRESS for an hour or so after three unsuccessful login attempts. It is still possible to access your admin cell while and yet you have good protection against hackers if you accomplish that.
