    article is good but its not providing solution which i want

  5. The short answer? What you are asking for is not achievable, accomplishes nothing, and doesn't work.

    Oh, and you'll break your site. ;)

    That link Seacoast provided is not bad.

    If you are concerned about security then that entire article is pretty good. If you just want to obscure WordPress somehow then you could try many things including plugins but again you may break your site.
