    Try using BBQ plugin for Wordpress. I hear it is lot faster than Wordfence.
    No matter what you do, always keep a remote offsite backup.

    • You can change the wp-admin login url to a custom one that only you know about. There are plugins to achieve this.
    • Limit login attempts to your wordpress website to atmost 5 times.
    • Use a security plugin like wordfence. It can really help to prevent malicious attacks.
    • Also don't forget to use a very strong password for logging in.

    Install SSL and Cloudflare, there are free SSL packages that you can add to your WP just dont forget that you need to maintain it on your own and reinstall every three months.

    Try to set up a website lockdown feature and band users, use two-factor authentication for WP security, rename your login URL (it will help too) and also adjust your passwords.

    I would also suggest setting the activity log, which monitors WordPress users’ activity and identifies suspicious behaviour. In fact, it records all user changes and that is a useful thing if you're not the only person who has access to the admin panel.
