How to log in to WordPress

The WordPress Dashboard is the starting place for administrating a WordPress installation. There are multiple ways to access the Dashboard. 


Make sure your domain resolves to the server where WordPress is installed.

WordPress only works correctly when the domain it is installed for resolves to the server where it is installed. That means that when the domain is entered into the address bar of a browser, the front page of the site should be visible.

Enter the login address into the address bar on your browser replacing example.com with your domain name. The WordPress login page can be reached at 2 different URLs:
