How to Find the WordPress Login URL: Beginner's Guide

WordPress makes it real easy for beginners to set up a website in a jiffy. But after that, how do you log in to your brand new website? This post will show you how to find your WordPress login URL.

The simplest way to find your WordPress login URL is to add /admin to the end of your site URL. For example, if your WordPress site is www.mywebsite.com, you can access your login page by visiting www.mywebsite.com/admin. If you are not logged in, WordPress will automatically redirect you to the WordPress admin login page.

Or, you can head straight to the login page by adding /wp-login.php to the end of your site. For example www.mywebsite.com/wp-login.php.

However, there are some situations where this might not work, so let’s go over some other ways to find your WordPress login URL…

Other ways to find the WordPress login URL

The tactic above works in 95% of situations, but there are a few scenarios where it won’t work.

Specifically, it won’t work if you installed WordPress in a sub-directory or on a subdomain. In that case, you’ll need to add the sub-directory name at the end of the site URL or add the subdomain name at the start of the URL.

For example, if you installed WordPress at blog.mywebsite.com, you can log in by visiting blog.mywebsite.com/admin.

Or, if you installed WordPress at www.mywebsite.com/blog, you can log in by visiting www.mywebsite.com/blog/admin.

If you’re not sure where you installed WordPress, you can:

  • Check your hosting dashboard. Many hosts list the direct URL of your WordPress installation.
  • Ask your host’s support for help.
