LWS Hide Login


Secure your website with this plugin !
Redirect your users if they try to access your admin page directly.
Choose your own link from your login page and protect your website.

Dashboard redirection

By default, the 404 page is displayed when trying to access the administration or login page without being logged in or with the wrong URL. You can change this redirection to any page you like.

New login address

By default, the login page to access your wordpress dashboard is accessible at the address of your domain to which we add the suffix /wp-admin or /wp-login.php.
By changing the login address via the LWS Hide Login plugin, the wp-admin directory and the wp-login.php page become inaccessible, you will have to use the new URL to login.
If you deactivate this plugin, your site will be as it was before, accessible at the old URL.

This plugin is pre-installed when ordering one of these LWS webhosts: WordPress hosting, Classic shared web hosting and cPanel hosting (soon)

Why optimize your WordPress site?

Optimizing your WordPress site allows you to gain speed when loading your pages, among other things. The shorter this time is the more pleasant the navigation is for your visitors. It is also a significant asset for your web referencing on Google and other search engines. Some of the included tools also allow you to reinforce the security of your WordPress site.

What to do if you have forgotten your URL or login?

To find the login url you modified but forgot, you can go in your MySQL database and search the value of lws_aff in the options table (sitemeta table if multisite). Otherwise, you can delete the folder corresponding to the lws-hide-login plugin in the WordPress files. So the connection via wp-login.php / wp-admin is restored. You can then reinstall the plugin.
Do the same if you have lost your login.
