    I have not even send the website live yet or even submit it to the google engine

  • Make sure that in settings, under general, you have it set so nobody can sign up.

    Hi thank you but i am going to use WP as forum for members later on down stream will a forum plug in take care of that if not it must be a way to control the user creation by admin authorisation when account is created

    Plenty of plugins out there that make it harder for bots to sign up for your site. Just gotta throw in a Google search (or search the plugin repos).

    bad behaviour
    akismet
    cookies for comments

    Those three plugins will save a lot of headache down the road for various spam issues
