CyberSpace (Secure your Internet) Letterhead:
How hackers hack your website:
Basically, hackers use some software to access your website file manager and admin panel. Make sure never share your website or blog credential information like user id password with anyone. They guess your user id and password according to your website/blog behavior and nature. Never use any password related to your name or your website name because it’s easy to guess. Another method is they inject some file or script to your website and they got secret information related your website/blog. If your website blog has file upload option on any page make sure user can’t upload any file only can upload file related same format. So no one can inject any external script or file to your website.

Free Method to secure your website:
Here are below free method to secure your blog or website:
Always use a strong user name and password. If you have a weak user name and password then it may harm your blog security. Never use any user name and password related to your blog name or your name. If you are a WordPress user then you may enable custom login URL where you can change your by default URL yoursite.com/wp-admin because this login path knows everyone. So user name and password is a very important factor to secure your blog/website.
If it is possible to use 2-factor authentication then will add an extra layer to your website/blog security. If you are a WordPress user you can use a custom plugin for that. But if you have another CMS then you may use the custom script or program to enable that option. After enable that program no one can log in with OTP which you get on your mobile number or mail ID.
Use Positive SSL:
SSL is a very important factor for blog/website security. So I always recommend that use SSL with your website. It also effects on your organic reach and ranking as well in search engine. Users also trust more those websites & blogs having SSL certificate.
Block Suspicious IP:
If you found any suspicious activity never ignore them and block that IP address as soon as possible. Because it may harm your website. Hackers never use their real IP. They always use suspicious IP so no one can be caught them and their location. If you found any one create an account with anonymous IP just block that account and ban that IP. You can use many paid and free plugins available on WordPress or you may use 3rd party services like Cloudflare and another security provider.
Verify User account time to time:
Always verify your user’s account time to time. Delete inactive user account and verify their mail ID or mobile number they used at the time of account creating. Scan your database and server time to time.
Avoid Nulled themes and Plugin:
If your site or blog having WordPress CMS then never use nulled theme or plugin. There are many websites over the internet which provides you Paid themes and plugin for free. But never go for that because maybe they nulled or already injected with suspicious scripts that may hack your site easily. So always purchase the theme from their own developers with the license or buy from largest theme markets like Themeforest or Envato.
Avoid Nulled themes and Plugin:
Enable Cloudflare free security to manage your website security. But if you are startups or Blogger then use their free plan otherwise for a business website and e-commerce upgrade your plan to premium.
