How to Login to WordPress Sites – WP Admin Access

WordPress is renowned for the WP dashboard – the administration panel you use to manage your website, its content, appearance, and functionality. If this is your first project, however, you might be wondering where you need to go to access the dashboard.

The login URL can be changed at a later stage, but immediately after the installation, your WordPress dashboard can be found at:

https://[your domain name]/wp-admin/

It’s also accessible via:

https://[your domain name]/wp-login.php

Bear in mind that for these URLs to work, your domain needs to be pointed at the correct nameservers.

You can use the login credentials you’ve set during the installation process.
