Wordpress security check list

I own a website on godaddy.com and getting some good traffic. What security checkpoints should I consider?

 

Thanks

Here are the basics:

 

=> Delete the default "admin" username account.

=> Use difficult passwords.  8+ characters, combos of caps, small-case, numbers, special characters.

=> Keep WordPress, plugins and themes updated at all times.

 

All in One Security is a good plugin to get in place that helps you cover all the bases! 😉
