Without any doubt, we can say that WordPress is one of the Powerful CMS platform available and has been gaining prominence all over the web because of its open source nature. Obviously, day by day millions of websites are starting their actions for various business and knowledge sharing purposes. So it is a crucial thing to make your website unique and more secure in order to attract visitors or get more attention from the world. Forcing audience to give some kind of priority to your website, is something achievable. So I would like to provide my viewers some of the tips that you can use when you are starting a new website. To make your website something new and stand out from others you have to take care of some of the tips:


Your business logo must be unique and powerful as it’s a symbolic representation of your company. Professional site owners and bloggers are identified by their logos, emblems etc. and this is your face to the world. So a well-designed logo is an essential part of your business and overall marketing. An outstanding logo will always make you stand out in social media also. Logo including the graphics can be much attractive than the simple logo without any effects.

2.Attractive Design:

Website design always have a vital role to make your visitors get involved in your website. When someone is new to the website, design of your website will be a deciding factor that determines whether they leave or not. So to make your website stand out, you must use newer and attractive fonts and styles, combination of colors, easy navigation system etc.

3.Impressive Contents:

Website traffic can be increased by posting contents most beneficial to the audience. Once they are impressed and get a feel that your website has something vital for them, then they will be forced to visit your website again and share it with others.

4.Mobile friendly:

Technology has been changed a lot from our ancient days. Nowadays, people expect to access the internet without much stress and hindrances. So they make use of devices such as smartphones, tablets etc. other than desktop computers and laptops. Making your website mobile friendly is now becoming a crucial thing in this modern age since the audience are always eager to learn and engage in sharing information’s through easy ways.


A good website will always be friendly to search engines and allows customers ease of accessing the desired information from your website. Websites are created to help relevant people to get their business and get in touch with the business. Here are some tips to improve your SEO options:

1.Responsive web designs

2.Add social media capabilities

3.Avoid using flash and frames

4.Use ALT tags to read information from images

While keeping an eye on making your website attractive, it is also very important to make your website secure too. Even though WordPress is an open-source platform this nature makes it vulnerable. So cyber criminals always are awake to steal information’s via different ways. To prevent this kind of attacks we have to keep in mind the following aspects:

6.Limit Login attempts:

Brute force attacks are the most common forms of security attacks on the Internet. It allows hackers test millions of login combinations in a very short time. With only password left to intercept, you are already making their job half-accomplished. To fix this issue, you can try installing plugins like Limiit login attempts and  iThemes Security and make brute force attacks harder to pull off. Using these plugins you can specify the number of failed attempts.

7.Use SSL (Secure Socket Layer):

Customers who have an e-commerce WordPress site will need an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate. An SSL certificate validates your website’s identity and encrypts all information sent to and from your website. When you have an SSL installed, your customers’ data will be fully secured for all financial transactions, usernames and passwords, and credit card information.   WordPress directory offers many already built  plugins and all of them  helps you to install SSL with your WordPress Websites   such as  WordPress HTTPS (SSL), Forces SSL etc.

8.SQL Injections:

If you are aware of .htaccess and its usage, you can also use Apache code to augment the security of your WP files by adding the below mentioned code in the .htaccess file.

RewriteEngine  On
 RewriteRule ^ (.*) $ – [F, L] RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING}../ [NC,OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} boot.ini [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} tag= [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} ftp: [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} http: [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} https: [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} (<|%3C).*script.*(>|%3E) [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} mosConfig_[a-zA-Z_]{1,21}(=|%3D) [NC,OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} base64_encode.*(.*) [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} ^.*([|]| (|)|<|>|e|”| ;|?|*|=$).* [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} ^.*(“|’|<|>|| {||).* [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} ^.*(%24&x).* [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} ^.*(%0|%A|%B|%C|%D|%E|%F|127.0).* [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} ^.*(globals|encode|localhost|loopback).* [NC, OR]
 RewriteCond %{ QUERY_STRING} ^.*(request|select|insert|union|declare).* [NC]
 RewriteCond %{ HTTP_COOKIE}! ^.*wordpress_logged_in_.*$ RewriteRule ^ (.*) $ – [F, L]
