What Is Wp-Admin Login URL?
The WordPress admin page URL (or ‘login URL’) is the web address you visit when you want to access the back-end of your website. If you are looking to do some administrative tasks around your website it is easily possible to do so through https://www.your-domain.com/wp-admin. Unfortunately, this fact is also a common entry point for attackers who utilize this knowledge and use this path as an attack point for hacking attempts via the brute force methods.
Why Is It Important To Secure Your Wp-Admin?
Hackers may have a number of different reasons why they may be targeting your WordPress website. We have listed some extremely common examples to give you a better idea as to why your site may be a target:

- Use Your Web Server to Host Phishing Pages
- Steal Your Server Bandwidth
- Overload Your Web Server
- Vandalize Your Website

The moment hackers realize that your site is a WordPress site, they will automatically know your WP-Admin path. It is also common knowledge that WordPress creates an “admin” username by default. With these pieces of information, the hacker has ⅔ of everything required for login. All they have to do now is guess your password. Hackers do not know if you have a more complex username and password combination and so they may continue to try their luck continuously for long periods of time. This process is taxing on server resources and opens the possibility of your site being shut down.
