Lock it up: The best ways to secure your Wordpress site.

 WordPress, I can't think of a website CMS I like better, it's ease of use and incredible sophistication make it the best place to go for amateurs and professionals alike when it comes to building and maintaining a website. Now i've used a lot of different software and languages over the years in building more than a few websites (cold fusion anyone? Hello Tom are you out there?)

If you get the reference, you rock.
Granted there are times when a starting from ground up on a build is obviously the best choice for your needs, but what most people don't realize is a lot of those reasons have to do with security.
When you have a one size fits all kind of application like WordPress security is going to be a issue. Fortunately Wordpress has a amazing market of free to download plug ins that can not only add some incredible features and SEO options to your site, but it is also the place where you can go to get all your security needs squared away.

In my humble opinion when it comes to security, there is no better plug in than "Better WP Security" it is by far the most robust and secure, that I have used. Best of all; like most WordPress plug-in's, it's completely free. Remember if you do download this plug in make sure to keep it updated otherwise you will throw that security right out the window.

  1. I've been using word fence for security. You can block IP address that attack your site. Seems fairly solid.
