How Hide My WP Ghost can help you to change common paths and hide your URLs from hackers
The majority of password-guessing attacks will try to hit your WordPress wp-admin, wp-login, xmlrpc endpoints URL that accepts a user name and password. Also, it may attack the installed themes and plugins and other known vulnerable files.
Hackers are everywhere online and they are always ready to capture your company data and even sell it to the highest bidder
In the following, I’ll explain every step that you should take to have a secure website.
You’ll learn how to use Hide My WP Ghost to protect your website from hackers.
A hacker needs to find your login page, if he or she intends to use a brute force attack on the login page to gain access.
Normally, to get to the login page all you have to do is go to /wp-admin or /wp-login.php. Most WordPress websites have the login entry point at http://yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php.
By hiding your login page you will protect your website. This way, the attacker can’t identify a potential point of entry.
A bot that can’t find your login page, can’t attempt to log in.
Similar to the wp-login.php page, there is the wp-admin directory which also needs to be protected.
Beside the huge security advantage, this saves lots of server processing time by reducing PHP and MySQL usage since brute force attacks trigger wrong URLs.
By default, WordPress puts all your content (including images, plugins, themes, uploads and more) in a directory called “wp-content.”
This default folder name makes it easy for attackers to scan for files with security vulnerabilities on your WordPress installation because they know where the vulnerable files are located.
Renaming the “wp-content” folder can make it more difficult or even impossible for an attacker to find the vulnerable files, as scans of your site’s file system will not produce any results.
You also need to change any links containing /wp-content/, /themes/, and /plugins/ for better security.
Hide WordPress Common files:
Restrict access for unwanted visitors and trigger a “Page not found” error
Change the WordPress theme directory, remove theme Info from stylesheets and replace default WP classes.
Change plugins directory and hash plugin names.
Set random plugin names.
Set random theme names.
Remove unwanted classes.
Remove ids from stylesheets and scrips metas.

There is no difference in features between Safe Mode and Ghost Mode, just in the predefined settings.
By default, Safe Mode does not modify the wp-admin and admin-ajax.php paths, it just hides them. Also, it doesn’t hide the common paths (wp-includes, wp-content, plugins, themes) and WP-JSON API calls.
Safe Mode has been created to eliminate many incompatibilities with custom themes and plugins that we have tested in recent years.
Safe Mode provides a good level of security, even if these settings are not enabled.
If you feel confident you can switch to Ghost Mode, since you can always go back to Safe Mode in one click.
