1. Make use of strong passwords
You must always make sure that you are using strong passwords for your server. It should be a combination of alphabets, numbers, alphanumeric characters with a combination of upper and lower case. For example : Qdndj@IT1397#
If you use such passwords then your server will be at a least risk of getting hacked.
