Some of the benefits of being an InMotion WordPress Hosting customer is that we can migrate your existing WordPress website to your InMotion Hosting account or easily get you set up with a site that has WordPress already installed. At that point it’s just a matter of logging in and getting started.
Once you have completed the installation of WordPress, you can login to your dashboard. The admin section of WordPress, the “WordPress Dashboard“, is where you will begin building your WordPress site. Please take note that your login credentials are not the same as your cPanel username and password unless you set them up as the same.
WordPress Installation URL: if you installed WordPress on the root of your domain, your URL to access WordPress would be: example.com/wp-admin
WordPress Username: This is the username you set up when initially installing WordPress.
WordPress Password: This is the password you set up when installing WordPress. If you emailed the installation details during the installation process it will be in that email as well.
Steps to login to WordPress
To access the WordPress dashboard you simply need to add /wp-admin to the end of the URL where you installed WordPress. For example:
Note! If you installed WordPress to the document root of the url it would be example.com/wp-admin. If you installed WordPress on a folder called “blog” on your domain you would go to example.com/blog/wp-admin
Type the username and password you used when you installed your WordPress.
Please note: If you change WordPress to work using your temp URL, when you are ready to have the site go live, you will need to change it back so it will function using the real domain name instead.
I can’t login to my WordPress dashboard
There are several reasons why you may be getting errors when trying to login to your WordPress dashboard. We will go over a few of the common ones.
WordPress login disabled
If you are getting this error, it is because there have been too many failed logins on your dashboard. Our automated systems have disabled your WordPress admin to prevent your site from being compromised due to WordPress brute force attacks. To resolve this issue, we recommend you increase the security measures utilized on your WordPress site. (Click the link below for tips on how to make your site more secure.)
