This wikiHow teaches you how to log into the admin area of your own website. You can usually do this through the website hosting service, although Windows users can also use the Havij program to find the administrator's login address for logging into a site if you don't know where to log in.
Method 1 of 2: Log in to your own website
Step 1. Make sure you try to login to your own website
If you have the details of a domain administrator (for example your email address and a password), you can log in to the administrator panel of your website by entering it in the correct location.
Step 2. Try logging into the hosting address website
Most website hosting services (for example: WordPress, Weebly, GoDaddy, etc.) have an admin panel that you can access by logging into the hosting service's website.
- For example, for a WordPress domain, go to the url of the hosting service (in this case https://www.wordpress.com/), click login, enter your login details, go to your admin page by clicking My Site, scroll down and click WP Admin.
Step 3. Determine the base address of the website
You'll need to do this if you can't log in through the host's website. The base address is the URL of the website that most people will see.
For example, the base address of Facebook is "https://www.facebook.com"
Step 4. Add several 'admin' tags to the base address
If you can't access the login page through the hosting company's address, you can try to do so directly using the following variations:
Step 5. Enter your username or email address
Once you arrive at the login page, you will usually see two text fields; you enter your login name or email address in the "Email" or "Username" text field (usually the top text field).
Step 6. Enter your password
Type the administrator password into the "Password" text field, usually directly below the "Username" or "Email" field.
Step 7. Click on the 'Login' or 'Sign in' button
It is normally located below the 'Password' text field. This will log you in to the administration panel of the website.
Method 2 of 2: Finding the administrator page with Havij
Step 1. Understand how this method works
You can use a free program called 'Havij' to scan a base address (for example, your website address) for the correct administrator login address. Havij will often return about 100 addresses, so you should only do this if you have no other access to the administrator's login page.
Havij is unfortunately not available for Mac computers
Step 2. Download Havij
Go to this Havij download page to download the file 'Havij_1.12_Free.zip' to your computer.
Depending on your browser's settings, you may need to confirm that you want to download the file and/or specify a save location before continuing
Step 3. Extract the file
Double click on the folder 'havij.zip', and click on the tab Unpacking at the top of the window and click Unpack everything. Enter darknet123 as password when prompted, then click Unpacking to finish decompressing Havij.
The extracted folder of Havij will open
Step 4. Install Havij
Double click on the setup file Havij 1.12 Free and do the following:
- Click on four times Next one.
- click on to install.
- Make sure the 'Start Havij' box is checked.
- click on To block.
Step 5. Wait for Havij to open
Once Havij is open, you can proceed to find your web address for the admin login page.
Step 6. Click on Find Admin
This is a blue icon in the shape of a person at the top of the Havij window.
Step 7. Enter the web address of your website
In the 'Path to search' field, type the address of the website you want to find the admin login page for.
Step 8. Click Start
This can be found on the right side of the web address.
Step 9. Wait for Havij to find the admin url of the website
Immediately after you press Start clicked, Havij should start creating a list of website addresses in green text at the bottom of the window.
- Once Havij has found all available addresses, you will see a confirmation message at the bottom of the window.
- If Havij does not immediately generate a list of urls in the pane at the bottom of the window, close Havij and reopen the program by typing havij Start
and clicking havij at the top of the menu.
Step 10. Try the URLs that Havij found
Copy a URL into the pane at the bottom of the window and enter it into your browser's address bar. If you are prompted for your login credentials as administrator, you have successfully found the login page; you can log in with your e-mail address (or username) as administrator and the corresponding password, as usual.
