    You can also try using a password that's hard to crack. Instead of using simple English words, try using a long # and letter combination. Those are much more difficult for computers to figure out than a simple one or two word password.

    Best of luck to you!

    Did you find out how they hacked your site in the first place? If you didn't your hackers may come back!
