We have made a compilation of Indian Email Lists recommendations to protect your WordPress to the maximum. Being the most used content manager in the world, it is quite common for you to receive attacks from hackers, brute force and robots.

From the first moment of installing WordPress you have to specify a series of information that you have to enter in order for WordPress to communicate with the database.
Most of that information is provided by your hosting provider, such as the name of the database, the user and password of the same. But there is a decision to make: decide the prefix of the tables that will be created for WordPress.
By default, on this screen the prefix offered is wp_, so your tables will be such that wp_options, wp_comments, wp_posts, etc.
And, of course, this is something that every hacker knows, and it’s free information we give to any possible attacker, who knows that if you do not make a secure installation the WordPress tables – which are standard – will have those full names if you do not change the prefix.

The important thing is not how long or complicated it is but, at least, do not leave the prefix by default.
