Today most of the bloggers all around the world are using WordPress as their blogging Platform. It is one of best blogging platforms in comparison with blogger.com, typepad etc. It is the keen responsibility of each and every blogger, to make his/her blog completely secure. In my earlier post, I have explained about How to change your default wordpress username?. But doing this much is not enough, you have to think more and secure more.
As you know the default login page of the WordPress blog is http://www.blogname.com/wp-login.php. This URL is set default for logging into WordPress Dashboard. Any individual, who is little bit aware about WordPress knows this login page URL. But there is a risk in it, with the help of brute-force attack or any hacking with the login URL can steal your Login Details. Even if your friend somehow came to know about your WordPress Dashboard Password, he can easily access it and then God Know, what will happen.
So, for making your blog more secure, you can change the Default Login URL. This can be possible with the support of the plugin named : Stealth Login.
Stealth Login is a free WordPress plugin. It enables you to create custom Logging in and Log-out URLs for administration and registration purposes. Even you can create any custom URL which you can easily remember.
You can also enable “Stealth Mode” which prevents users from directly accessing wp-login.php page. It secures your blog in such a way, i.e. if somehow somebody was able to crack your blog password, still he will not be able to find your login page. Hope, it helps you to appoint more security guards at your blog’s gate :). You can download this plugin from here : Stealth Login.
