How can I keep my site from getting hacked?

Years ago I had a WordPress site that was always getting hacked. My question:

How can a person who has no programming skills keep their website from getting hacked?

I've seen some web hosts that handle security for you -- but they seem to cost $80 per month.

      Hide your WP admin login
      Install WP two-step verification plugin
      (use Authy or any other supported login app)
      Use Updraft for backups (free) version. If you pay for it, then it will offer a number of features plus backup your data on a 3rd party site such as google, aws, etc.

      ALL of these plugins are free.

    Also: Do you think a person without coding skills is better off using a different blog platform?

    You can't so that much on your own. Two step verification and a few other plugins will help, but I recommend a host better

    1. Use a strong password for WordPress site, hosting account, cPanel and MySQL DB.
    2. Install plugins such as Wordfence.
    3. Use Cloudflare as your CDN and DNS.
    4. Use staging (multiple options available) for creating your website and push all changes to the live site. This way your public website is always backed up at a safe place.
