I have started my hosting service with inMotion today and right away I installed wordpress under the domain

It was working perfectly for a few hours after the installed but some reason it stopped working all together.

Now my wordpress page is working but the admin panel is still not working and I am getting a 404 error code. Can you please help?

Thank you very much!

Hello cherishkan,

Thank you for your question. Since Wordpress is very popular, it is also a common target for hack attempts.

To combat this, we have implemented some security measures that can stop you from accessing the accessing the login page.

If your WordPress admin access has been blocked because of the recent WordPress wp-login.php brute force attack affecting multiple web hosts, adding your IP address to the .htaccess file should allow you back in (you can also wait 20 minutes for the lockout to stop).

This is part of our full article on the Wordpress brute force attacks.

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