Security must be the first thing you do when you build a website. For this security purpose, there are many plugins to be used. My WP Ghost plugin can be effective when you want to make sure you secure your website.
What does “hiding WordPress” mean? It means you’re trying to hide the fact that your site runs on WordPress from any person or bot that attempts to identify the CMS.
By hiding the WordPress, you don’t actually change the paths of the CMS. In fact, the known WordPress paths are virtually renamed so that you can protect the real ones.
Is hiding my WordPress a solution?
Yes, it is. Most of the hacking attempts are made by bots, and you can prevent these attacks by obscuring your WordPress paths: wp-content, wp-include, plugins, themes, etc.
Just by changing the main paths, you can protect your website against things like brute-force attacks, SQL-injection, and requests to your PHP files.
Protection against: Brute Force Attacks, SQL Injection Attacks, Cross Site Scripting (XSS), Throttling of Access Attempts to Entry Points
I have over 10 years experience in building plugins and themes for WordPress and other platforms.
Contact me if you have plugins that you want me to check before you insert them in your website. I will be happy to check them for security and speed.
