I have Bluehost and I know that they are partnered with Sitelock. I understand that I can use them or another third party security scan.
What is the smartest approach if I am on a budget but don't want to skimp on keeping my website safe?

Appreciation in advance for any tips.http://www.individuallywrapped.net
Thank you for the recommendations.
Are Sucuri and WordFence services similar to iThemes Security and Shield Security?
I'm wondering if it is unwise to go with a free security service (plugin), or you get what you pay for...Will I be sorry if I do not spend several hundreds of dollars to get a premium WordPress website security service?
I personally use the free version of Wordfence plugin on client sites.
I also make sure I follow good security practices like making sure that the admin username is not "admin", using a secure password etc.
Does not hurt to have automatic scheduled backups as well.
Thanks for describing your process, super helpful! Gave me a good image of the various elements for security.
Regarding "making sure that the admin username is not "admin"...
Did you use the free version of Wordfence to achieve this?
Super, thanks bunches for helping me!
