  1. Gagan, thanks for this detailed and highly informative post. Hacking has become a major challenge online. everyday, several websites are hacked, either for fun or for the purpose of obtaining the site owner's details. Some are even hacked with the intent to maliciously destroy all that one has laboured for.
    It is good to do all that you can humanly do to protect your site from being hacked. Even if you cannot completely stop it, you can at least reduce the chances of being hacked by half.

    1. Yes, you are right @Efoghor Joseph Ezie, We should take back up on daily basis of our all data. I am glad to see your comment on my blog. Keep in touch,
