Securing Your CMS Admin Panel Login

Why should I change my admin URL?

Most Content Management Systems (CMS’s) have a unique identifying login URL. For example, WordPress uses

  • domain.com/wp-admin.php
  • domain.com/wp-login.php

for your admin login page. Because of this, hackers assume that is your login and can try to use this info, as well as the default username of admin. If you do not modify either of these, your potential risk for being hacked goes up exponentially. It is important that you select an administrative username that is unique to you or your business and create a secure password.
