Your Server – Web Hosting Security

This section of the WordPress Security Tutorials module includes tutorials on web hosting security.


Some tutorials in this module may require editing your WordPress template or server files. If you need help modifying template or server files please contact a professional or experienced WordPress user for assistance (learn where to get help with WordPress).

Important: Always do a backup of your WordPress site (files and data) before modifying any files. If you don’t want to back up your files manually, then consider getting professional assistance, or use a WordPress backup plugin.
