How do I login to my website?
Unless your website required the login page to be masked or hidden in some way, this procedure applies to all self-hosted WordPress websites.
All sites with monthly maintenance plans require 2 Factor Authentication.
Logging In with 2 Factor Authentication (using an Authenticator App)
Logging In with 2 Factor Authentication (using Email)
STEP 1: Add /wp-login.php after your site's URL in your browser.
STEP 2: BEFORE entering your username and password, click "here" in the "If you agree to these terms, please click here."
STEP 3: Enter your username and password, click the "I'm not a robot" box, then click "Log In".
STEP 4: Next, you will be prompted to enter an Authentication Code. Do NOT navigate away from this page.
NOTE: This is another safety feature that prevents bots from hacking your login.
STEP 5: In a NEW tab or window, open the email belonging to your WordPress account. Within 0-5 minutes, you will receive a one-time authentication code via email. Copy this code to your clipboard (Control + C).
STEP 6: Navigate back to the tab or window where you were asked for the authentication code. Paste the code into the box.
NOTE: Occasionally, your copied code may contain an extra space at the beginning or end - ensure that this extra space is deleted before clicking "Log In".
NOTE: If you accidentally closed the website window, you will need to repeat this process over and receive a new code.
