WordPress is an amazing platform. Since its launch twelve years ago, it has grown to power over 25% of the ten million most popular websites — an impressive achievement by any measure. (The next most popular content management system is Joomla, with just 2.8% market share.)
The popularity of WordPress means that there’s a vast pool of first- and third-party resources to draw upon for everything from themes, to plugins, support, and more. It is for those reasons — and many more — that we recommend WordPress as a cost-effective web platform solution for our clients.
Another reason we use WordPress is for its security, which has become even more solid with each update. But with great popularity comes great challenges in ensuring that only the right people have access. We’ve compiled this list of our favourite techiques for securing a WordPress site, ordered from easiest-to-do to more challenging.
