My site has been hacked many times

This request is clear and relevant.
This request is not clear or is not relevant.


My site has been hacked many times from diferent IPs and I would like a more secure login form in backend and frontend. I am still working on this site that is under construction and I will feel more safe if I can use a secure login solution.

    Secure login (including password storing) solution - it's a great idea, but...

    Probably problem little bit wider than you thought. There are several ways to get access to your site:

    1. Someone has login and password. It's normal situation - each registered user has login and password.
    2. Someone stole you database and decrupt password hash. First thing you should to do is change database password. Second - check all you queries to database, use PDO with placeholders (prepare-execute statements).
    3. Someone has FTP access to you site. If someone has FTP access, he could easily stole your DB, but much more better is to implode some code, which authorize anyone as administrator. So, first thing - change FTP password. Second - check you code on "bad code" injections. Use Git or something.
    4. Someone use system exploit. If you use some third party CMS or framework - update it till last version. If it is you own system - test it carefully.

    As you said your site is under construction. So, is it possible to work on local server? And only after product release (including all tests) upload it on hosting.

    This package can be used precisely for that, provide a secure registration and login system with records stored in a database.
