You can log into your WordPress website admin dashboard from anywhere in the world. You'll learn how to log into your WordPress website admin dashboard and log out also. You can update any part of your website from the WordPress admin dashboard including updating pages and blog posts.

Recommendation: You should not log into your dashboard from a shared computer. This could lead to your website content being compromised if someone gets ahold of your password.

Step 1

Log In URL

You can log into your website by typing the following URL into any browser's URL bar.

https://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin/

You must replace the yourdomain.com with your own domain name. Once you go to that URL  you will be redirected to the login screen. Read step 2 thoroughly before you log in.

Step 2

Verify Security

You should have a secure URL which is signified with a lock icon and the URL will begin with https.

In Google Chrome the login URL will look something like below with the secure elements in green. DO NOT log in if the padlock is broken or it is in red. Contact our support email immediately if there is any indication your website is not secure.
