WordPress Secure Setup Guide


WordPress is, generally speaking, a relatively easy system to install and have ready to work on in a short space of time. However, it’s also easy to inadvertently do so in a way which leaves your site open to hackers, lagging in the search engines, or loading at a snail’s pace.

In this course you’ll learn how to set up your WordPress sites in a way that will enhance their security, give them a strong SEO foundation, and optimize their speed. You’ll also learn how to handle a few other bits and pieces you’ll need for pretty much every WP site you create.

We’ll start at the very beginning and walk through every step right up to the point your site is finely tuned and ready for content to be added.

So let’s jump into the first lesson of the “WordPress Secure Setup Guide”!

Note: This course assumes you have hosting with cPanel that meets the minimum WordPress requirements.
