    I love using WordPress for all my sites. I don’t know if I do all the steps mentioned. One of the things that I do when I set up all my personal sites is I take a step further and do a secure installation. This means that I don’t use the one click cPanel install. I will have to begin implementing these other things to ensure that I get the most out of my sites. Thanks
