8.Protect the wp-config.php file
The wp-config.php file holds crucial information about your WordPress installation, and it’s in fact the most important file in your site’s root directory. Protecting it means protecting the core of your WordPress blog

In such a case, changing files and directory permissions is a good move to secure the website at the hosting level. Setting the directory permissions to “755” and files to “644” protects the whole file system – directories, subdirectories, and individual files.
This can be done either manually via the File Manager inside your hosting control panel, or through the terminal (connected with SSH) – use the “chmod” command.
10.Disable directory listing with .htaccess
If you create a new directory as part of your website and do not put an index.html file in it, you may be surprised to find that your visitors can get a full directory listing of everything that’s in that directory.
