Change all passwords across all devices, CMS(WordPress Joomla, etc) and logins(Cpanel, client area, email account, FTP, database, etc) and ensure you use a strong password
Enable 2-factor authentication
Trace back your actions to know how the compromise came back it might be through a new installation of a plugin/theme or a new upload of a file.
Reset your .htaccess file
Install a security plugin like sucuri
