These instructions will teach you how to log in to your WordPress website. You will need your Username and Password. If you don’t have them you can use the password recovery tool explained in this article.

Note: Do not go to WordPress.com. This is a different service than what your website is built on.

Go to your website login page

In a new browser tab go to this URL:
YourWebsiteHere.com/wp-admin
Replace “YourWebsiteHere.com” with your own domain name. Then add “/wp-admin” to the end.

Enter your username and password

Enter your username and password associated with your account.
Use the “Remember Me” checkbox to stay logged in and skip the login process next time.
Use the “Lost your password” option if you don’t know your password. You can set a new password with the email address on file.
