“How do I find my WordPress login page?”
This is probably the most common question that WordPress users have asked. If you have just created a new WordPress website (and self-hosted it), you would find it challenging to locate and remember your WordPress login URL.
Why do you need to find your WordPress login page URL? Simple, to sign in to your WordPress admin account and modify your WordPress website settings. If you have administrator rights, you can perform multiple tasks like viewing your WordPress dashboard, adding new webpages or posts, installing plugins and themes, and much more.
Through this article, we shall talk about simple ways to navigate to your WordPress or WP login URL – along with methods to remember it.
How to find your WordPress login page
Here are 4 easy ways to find your WordPress login page:
- Through WordPress directly
This is the easiest way to find your WordPress login URL (or page). All you need to do is to append /login or /admin to your website URL. For example, if your website URL is https://www.mysite1.com, you can find your login page at https://www.mysite1.com/login/ or https://www.mysite1.com/admin/.
With either of these URLs, you can directly open your WordPress login page where you can sign in with your WordPress account username and password. With the “admin” URL, you can directly sign in to your WordPress admin account. With this first method, most admin and non-admin users can successfully locate and sign into their WordPress accounts.
- Through a subdirectory
You must use this login method when you have installed WordPress in any subfolder or subdirectory. Additionally, you can use this method when the first method is not working for any reason.
In this method, you need to append /login or /wp-login.php after the subdirectory name. For example, if you have installed WordPress in the “wordpress1” subfolder, the WordPress login link would be:
- Through a website subdomain
This third method is used when your WordPress site is hosted on a subdomain. As in the second method, you need to append /login/ or /wp-login.php to your website’s subdomain address (for example, https://subdomain.mysite1.com)
In this case, you need to enter the WordPress login URL as:
- Through the WordPress Admin
This method can be used by authorized WordPress users (with administrator privileges) to access their admin accounts. You can directly open the WordPress admin login page by appending /admin/ or /wp-admin/ to your website URL. Once successfully logged in, you will be directed to the WordPress Admin panel.
In this case, you need to enter the WordPress Admin URL as:

How to remember your WordPress login URL
Once you have accessed the WordPress login URL for the first time, here are some easy methods to remember this URL for subsequent visits:
- Use the “Remember Me” checkbox.
On any WordPress login page, you will find the “Remember Me” checkbox. All you need is to enter your WordPress username and password in the respective fields on the login page once, and then select the “Remember Me” checkbox. This will enable you to directly access your WordPress admin page (without signing in) on every subsequent visit for 14 days.
- Bookmark your WordPress login page.
The most practical method to remember your WordPress login page is to bookmark it on your browser. Depending on the browser tool you are using, you can bookmark your login URL in different ways.
- Add the WordPress login URL to your website menu or footer.
Besides bookmarking, you can also choose to add your WordPress login URL link to your menu, footer, or sidebar. You can perform this step from the “Appearance” page of your WordPress admin dashboard. The first thing you need to do is to log in to your WordPress admin account and open the “Appearance” page.
Here is what you need to do next:
- To add the login URL to the menu, go to the “Appearance > Menus > Link” tab. From the Custom Links section, enter your login URL address and then click “Add to Menu.”
- To add the login URL to a footer or sidebar, you need to use the Meta widget. From the “Appearance > Widgets” tab, drag the Meta widget to the target location (footer or sidebar).
