It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to keep your blog safe from most hackers.

It just involves you taking a few simple steps and a few safeguards to make sure that you don’t have problems in the future.

Here are a few things you can do right now. Make sure all your WordPress usernames and passwords are strong passwords and keep your email secure.

You would be amazed and surprised at how many people simple passwords such as their name, pet’s name, or names like test or test1234 as the password to their WordPress blog.

And in fact, there are robots or spiders that comb the internet trying to find these websites that have named their passwords in these simple names.

That means when you set up your WordPress account, don’t call it Admin.

And when you have a password, name your password something with at least one number, one uppercase letter, or even one punctuation character to ensure that no one can guess it.

The next thing you should do is make sure that no one has access to your email account.

It does you no good to have a strong WordPress password but a weak email password, because someone can always gain access to WordPress by using the lost password tool.

This means if someone has access to your email account, they can use the lost password and reset your WordPress password and now gain access to your website.

This means that you should secure your email, change your password regularly and be very careful whose computer and whose wireless network you use to check that email.

Now here’s a great thing that any paranoid webmaster can do, using your C-Panel backend, you can, in fact, block access to what’s called the WP-Admin Folder on your WordPress site.

Basically, you can go to a site such as what is my and it will show you a series of numbers.

Now, this number corresponds to you on the internet.

And you can, in fact, block everyone on the internet from accessing your WP-Admin Folder, your administrator dashboard, and then only allow this specific IP address that is yours to access it.

This means that even if someone happens to have your WordPress password, even if you have a weak password, you are the only person who can log in to that backend.

And finally, one thing that every blog owner should do that enables comments on their blog, is to use what is called an anti-spam plugin.

What this does is checks any new comments coming to your blog for spam.

And if you don’t have a plugin like this, your blog will at some point be flooded with thousands and thousands of spam comments flooding your site with all kinds of nasty links and garbage.

Install an anti-spam plugin or turn off comments entirely and that will help your blog from being spammed to death.

Those are some very simple tips to help secure your WordPress blog. Use strong passwords, secure your email, block the WP-Admin IP addresses except for yours in C-Panel, and use an anti-spam plugin.
