There are many WordPress plugins that can enhance your website’s functionality, performance, and security. Depending on your needs and preferences, you may want to consider some of the following plugins:

  • RunCloud Hub: This is an essential plugin for all WordPress websites hosted on RunCloud. It allows you to quickly implement Nginx FastCGI Cache or Redis Full-Page Caching on your WordPress site. You can also use it to quickly and securely log into your WordPress dashboard.
  • 2FA plugin for WordPress: RunCloud takes your site’s security very seriously; it ships with many security features enabled by default. However, it is never a bad idea to harden your site even more. The 2FA plugin for WordPress adds two-factor authentication to your WordPress login page, making it more secure and preventing unauthorized access.
  • Patchstack: This is a cloud-based security platform that monitors and protects your WordPress site from vulnerabilities, exploits, and attacks. It also provides automated backups, updates, and reports for your site.
  • Yoast SEO: This is another great plugin for improving your WordPress site’s SEO. It offers features such as keyword analysis, readability checks, content insights, and breadcrumbs.

These are just some of the best WordPress plugins that you can use for your website. There are many more plugins that you can explore in the WordPress official directory or third-party marketplaces. You can also create your own plugins if you have the skills and knowledge.

Although you can use the plugins listed above to enhance your site’s security, there are many additional ways to achieve this.

One of the best practices is to create a zero-trust network, which means that no one is trusted by default – and every request is verified before granting access. This way, you can prevent unauthorized access, data breaches, and cyber-attacks.

You also need to follow some basic guidelines, such as keeping your WordPress core, themes, and plugins updated, using strong passwords and two-factor authentication, and backing up your site regularly.
