The WordPress admin login is the back door to your WordPress. To get you into your side at all. You can only get in with your personal access data. That’s why you should always keep them safe.
When installing WordPress, you can choose your access data
Tip: Later you can in the tab user change your password again later.
You can find the login page at www.deinedomain.de/wp-admin or /wp-login.
Here you only have to enter your user name or e-mail address and the password below it.
Then you come to your WordPress backend. Here you can manage and customize your website. Voila
Have you forgotten your access data?
Below it says “Forgot your password” so you can have your password sent to you again.
Do you have further questions?
Then take a look at the German WordPress Support Forum.
Don’t like the boring design of the login page?
Then you can beautify it with simple tools like “Admin Custom Login”.
Choose your username and password carefully.
The password should not be generic. It is better to have your password generated externally. Here is a good password generator. It would be best if you make the length at least 12 characters. The longer the better.
Plugins for more security
A very simple protection would be Limit Login Attempts. This means that the attacker only has a certain number of attempts.
A good one makes even more sense Security Plugin. Free Variants are Wordfence or iThemes Security.
With premium solutions you can hide your wp-login with another path and thus make life difficult for hackers.
I think the possibility of a two-step authentication is very good. Then the applicant has to verify himself in an extra e-mail confirmation. If your site is very important, then this upgrade is worth it.
Here I would recommend Hide My WP.
And now implement the tips. Then from now on you have peace and security with your WordPress 🙂
