Essential toolkit for WordPress

Why Having a Toolkit is Important?

When growing a business, time is money. Leveraging the right set of tools will help you save time and get ahead. On the other hand, using the wrong set of tools can cost you a lot of money and hassle in the long run. That’s why I always recommend choosing the best tool for the job. Note: Not all plugins / services are free. A toolbox stuffed with necessary tools is crucial for the success of your website. Read more

Limit Login Attempts

Limit the number of login attempts possible both through normal login as well as using auth cookies. By default WordPress allows unlimited login attempts either through the login page or by sending special cookies. This allows passwords (or hashes) to be brute-force cracked with relative ease. Limit Login Attempts blocks an Internet address from making further attempts after a specified limit on retries is reached, making a brute-force attack difficult or impossible. Try Limit Login Attempts

Storage Tools

DROPBOX

Dropbox not only allows you to safely and securely storage your business files, but, if you’re working with other people, it makes it easy for you to collaborate on shared documents. The basic plan is FREE. Try Dropbox
