What is my Username and Password (I forgot)?

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 login to 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 login page. Please note, when using the Forgot Password feature for AMP, enter just your domain name (do not include https:// or www).

If you forgot your WordPress username you can view it in the database and there are several ways that you can reset your password.

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 is 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.

  1. I Didn’t receive any Welcome email so far. I’ve made the purchase an hour ago. Please help me.

    1. In cPanel click “Email Accounts” in the “Email” section to view your existing email accounts.
      Thank you,

    1. If you can’t remember your email password, you can reset your email account password using cPanel.

      If you can’t remember your cPanel password, you can reset your cPanel password in your Account Management Panel (AMP).

      If you can’t remember your AMP password, you can reset it using the AMP reset password link, which will require you to access your email address associated with your AMP account.

      If that email address is the email address that you are trying to reset the password for, then you should contact Live Technical Support to further assist you.

      I hope this helps!

  2. I’ve totally blanked on the admin password for a Joomla site I created a few years back.  I’ve tried resetting this from the Cpanel installation panel for Joomla, but it doesn’t seem to stick.  Any tricks to know about?

  3. Do you need a separate login/password for Support?  So far I have different ones for AMP & cPanel, but I often have problems posting comments/questions (hope this one takes) … I enter the comment, but when after doing the captcha and then clicking SUBMIT COMMENT, the screen redisplays and my comment is not there.

    Do they not show up right away? Are they held for approval or something?  I am not sure what is happening.  I was able to post one comment at the bottom of a help page a day or so ago, but nothing today (I fully expect this one to disappear, too).

    Any ideas at what is going wrong?

    1. Yes, comments on articles are not displayed until they have been approved. This is to help avoid the many spam posts we receive.

      The Support Center is our public forum and does not require login to comment on articles or ask questions. In order to comment on a “question” you would have to be logged in.

      AMP deals mostly with your billing information/dates, and also has access to your cPanel (or you can reset your cPanel password). While, cPanel is where your website files/database/emails are located.

      Thank you,

    2. Aloha, John-Paul.

      Thanks! It might be nice to add a note to the “welcome email” that you are dealing with three separate passwords. My former hosts had different logins for billing, cPanel & tickets but not for support per se.

      Obviously I will get used to the AMP thing, but it is a bit confusing at first when you are unfamiliar with it. 🙂

  6. As a new customer I did receive the welcome email but still it is not clear to me how to report failures to the technical support.  I have tried logging in into the support site but my user name or email are not recognised.  Do I  need a seperate username for that?  Is there a live chat somewhere for support?

    1. Any usernames would already be created for you. could you clarify what specific username you are looking for? Nearly all usernames are able to be located from within the instructions in this article.

    1. 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 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.
