What is WordPress?

If you’re not using WordPress (the most popular blogging platform in the world), you’re probably not secure.

WordPress is a very complex and powerful open source software, with some of the most popular plugins for managing your website and creating new ones. If you have security concerns about WordPress, reading this post will help you understand what is going on, what your options are, and how to protect yourself.

The first thing to do is make sure that you know what WordPress is and what it does. I’ve written a series of posts on these topics: Step-by-Step Introduction to WordPress – Part 1 & Step-by-Step Introduction to WordPress – Part 2 .

Here’s a quick overview:

What is WordPress?

WordPress (an acronym for Web publishing platform) was created in 2003 by Matt Mullenweg , an early adopter of the open source movement who wanted to build a free blog hosting service that didn’t require registration or fees. Mullenweg calls it “a CMS (content management system) for people who want to write blog posts but don’t want to pay for one — or do anything else fancy — with their hands.” Because it was built without charge, he never had to worry about its finances; rather he could focus his time on adding features and improving security.

Why should I use WordPress?

WordPress isn’t just a blogging solution but also has many other uses beyond blogging, such as managing hosting accounts, maintaining websites and integrating with other software platforms or systems. For example, if you want to run your own Facebook page or Instagram account, then WordPress is probably best suited for that too because it provides an easy way of getting Facebook likes without paying for them either through ads or through paid advertising (but only if you choose well). Other businesses would use it as well if they were running multiple websites instead of just one single site that they control from start to finish such as in case of small businesses where every member owns their own domain name etc … . So even if you aren’t yet using WordPress professionally (for whatever reason), there are still plenty of uses for this versatile software that still require its use today: social media management; website development; content creation (blogging); creating new domains; financial planning; etc

How to Secure WordPress Website from Hackers

In this article, I’m going to show you how to effectively secure your WordPress site. It is important to understand that it is not an easy task; but in fact, if done properly, it will be a very rewarding one.

In order to start hacking on your WordPress site, you need to first know the basics of WordPress security so that you can evaluate the risks involved. Once this has been achieved, we will go through the process of using some common WordPress security plugins and then testing them with our wordpress.

It is also important that you follow up on any false positives (we will cover this later) by doing a soft security scan alongside your hard security scan.

Conclusion

There is no such thing as a “secure” web app. But if you want to avoid enormous security breaches, then you need to make sure your website is secure and free from hackers.

The first step in securing your site is to set up two-factor authentication on every single account. This can be done by adding a secure token which, when entered as a password, will simply prompt you for the correct token on each login screen, or you can do it manually by adding this code to your .htaccess file:

## Add the Two-Factor Authentication ## ## 1. Create the Two-Factor Authentication Code ## ## 2. Paste the Code into Your .htaccess File ##  AuthTypeBasic AuthName “YourWebsite” AuthUserFile /var/www/html/.htpasswd

A two-factor authentication code consists of an element called “AuthorizationCode” which contains username and password information (in plain text) and a hidden element called “Authenticator”, which contains code that will be passed to your web server when requested with POST requests (the same one that generates the 401 Unauthorized response). The authorization code should be added on every login screen, where it will be required for each request to fetch a particular page.
