Within your hosting account, there are various tools that you can use to manage your hosting account and build a website. Not all of these tools are tied together, and in this article we hope to clear up any confusion on logins between the multiple systems.

AMP - Account Management Panel

When you log into AMP, you actually login using your email address as a username. If you have forgotten your password, please use the I don't know my password link on the AMP log in page. Please note, when using the Forgot Password feature for AMP, enter just your domain name (do not include http:// or www).

cPanel - Your hosting account's Control Panel

  2. Click the Account Technical Details button.
  3. Your cPanel username will be listed next to Username

Email

Email passwords can be reset in cPanel and from the webmail interface. However, you would need to know the cPanel password in order to gain access to the interface that can change the email password. The webmail interface requires that you know the existing email password, so this option may not the best if you've lost your email account password. To see the steps necessary to reset your password using either of these methods, please read changing your email password.

FTP

FTP stands for file transfer protocol, and is used for uploading and download files from your hosting account. Your cPanel username and password is actually an ftp account as well, so you can use your cPanel username and password to login to your account via ftp. You also have the option to create ftp accounts for other users. For more help with this, please see How to create additional ftp accounts.

Premium Website Builder

When working with your Premium Website Builder, there are two logins:

  1. There is a login to simply access your builder and edit your site
  2. There is a username and password stored and used when you publish your site

The initial login for your Premium Site Builder (item #1 above) is actually your original cPanel username and your AMP password. If you are unable to log into the builder, you can find more information on resetting your password here: How Do I change my Premium Website Builder Login Password?

The second username and password involved with the Premium Site Builder is the actual publishing credentials. This is set to your cPanel username and password. Because the systems are not tied together, if you reset your cPanel password, your Builder's publishing settings will not be updated and you will not be able to publish any longer. For more help with updating your Builder's publishing username and password, please see: Updating your password setting in Premium Website Builder

Wordpress

I forgot my username

If you do not know your username, you can always go into the database to locate it as it is stored there. The following steps will walk you through doing so.

  1. First, log into cPanel and select the PHPMyAdmin option.

  2. Once in PHPMyAdmin, select the database that you have Wordpress installed on.

  3. The table that your Wordpress users are stored in the the users table. Of course, the name of this table will be prefaced with whatever prefix that you defined when you installed Wordpress. Click on that table on the left side of the screen to open it up.

  4. Once the table is open, you should see a few different columns there. Your Wordpress user is defined in the user_login column.

I forgot my password

Wordpress offers several options in resetting your password. You may reset your password via FTP, phpMyAdmin, or the "Forgot Password" button on the login screen. The following article will walk you through the process of resetting your passwords:

Hello John

Looking at your account notes, it appears your welcome email was sent out about 2 hours ago. Please be sure to double-check any spam or junk folders to make sure it didn't end up there.

It should have come from support@inmotionhosting.com with the subject Welcome to InMotion Hosting!.

If you still are not seeing it, please use the Support Chat link from the top-right of our website to ensure that we have the correct email address on file for you and that there are not issues delivering email to you there.

Hello James,

Thank you for your question about your cPanel password. We do not know your password, but you can reset your cPanel password in AMP.

You do not need to know the original password to create a new one in AMP.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,

Hello Amit,

You should be contacted around 30 minutes after you sign up by our confirmations team. Once they complete your confirmation, you should receive an email within 15-20 minutes with instructions on how to get started.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
