Site Title : Choose the title for your website. It will appear on your website. It is something you will be able to change later on in the ‘Theme options’.
Username : For the username avoids the word admin. It is too popular. Prefer a name of your own. It is something you won’t be able to change later on. Write this information down. You will need it in the next step to login to your WordPress account as an admin.
Password : Write it does. You will need in the next step to login to your WordPress account as an admin.
Your email : Your email will be used to be notified about new added comments on your post for example, if the notification functionality is activated. In your Settings, you can change later this email address.
Search Engine Visibility : I don’t tick ‘Discourage search engines from inducing this site’ as I want Google and any other search engine to find my website and reference it. Again here, it is something you can change again later on, if needed.

The plugin All-in-One Security and Firewall has a lot of features. You could find easily a plugin for just one of these functionality. But having them all together is a major advantage.

For example, you may want to limit the number of attempt to log in to the admin account to avoid robots to take control of your website.
Personalise the URL to connect to your account
You may also want to use a different URL to connect to your account.
By default, the URL is http://…./wp-admin
In the example below it is changed to http://…/acces

Why you install WordPress, the default database prefix is wp_. If you haven’t changed it yet or if you need to change it again because your website was hacked, you may want to use this plugin too. It has a functionality to do it very easily.
