Good tips, thanks for sharing! A couple of comments if you don't mind:

I uninstall the default themes

Do not remove all default themes, leave at least one. If something breaks on your theme, WordPress will attempt to use one of the official built-in themes to fallback so you can recover your site.

iThemes Security

Definitely a must have 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻!

Really Simple SSL

You do not really need a plugin for this. Setting up an Apache or nginx rule to always redirect your site to https is fairly simple. If you can't though, iThemes Security also has an option to force all traffic though https, it is under SSL.
