How to Find Your WordPress Login URL

Finding your WordPress login URL

Updated over a week ago

What Is the Default WordPress Admin URL?

By default, you can reach your WordPress Admin area by using one of the following URLs:

  • domain.tld/admin

  • domain.tld/wp-admin

  • domain.tld/login

  • domain.tld/wp-login

Where domain.tld is your domain name.

If you installed WordPress on a subdomain, you have two options - both will work:

  • subdomain.domain.tld/wp-admin or

  • domain.tld/subdomain/wp-admin

What to Do if the Default WordPress URL Doesn’t Work

First, verify that you have a working WordPress installation. You can use the Whatsmycms tool for that.

Next, check if you have any plugin that can change the wp-admin URL. In that case, you can disable it manually to enable the default URLs.

Other Possible Issues

Incorrect Password

If you encounter issues when logging into your WordPress Admin area, it is recommended to reset your password. In Web Premium and greater hosting plans, you can do so by connecting to your account via SSH.

First, enter the following command to list all of the current users in the WordPress installation:

wp user list

Next, update the password for your preferred user:

wp user update username --user_pass=NewPassword

Replacing username with the actual username and NewPassword with the new, strong password.

Cookies Error

If you get a cookies-related error similar to this while trying to log in:

The WordPress error "Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser"

Make sure that cookies are enabled on your browser. Check the guides below on how to enable them according to your browser:

If cookies are enabled, and you still receive this error, add the following line below to your wp-config.php file right before /* That's all, stop editing!...*/

define('COOKIE_DOMAIN', false);

Save the changes on the file and try logging in again. The error should be fixed 😊
