You’ve begun setting up your self-hosted WordPress website and if you’re anything like me, the number of login details you have to remember is unbelievable.
You vow to keep them organised. You start writing them in a notebook or keeping a Word file. Maybe you don’t keep track of them at all.
Even when you do remember to record them, it’s difficult to keep it in any kind of order.
I get it.
I’ve set up numerous websites which involve keeping track of WordPress, social media, and email accounts. Each and every time there is at least one log-in I forget to record. Over the years I’ve devised my own resource to keep track of it all. And I’m making it available to you in both Word and PDF.
You can keep track of usernames, passwords, linking of WordPress with social media accounts, and who you’ve given administration access to on Facebook. There are even sections to fill out the URL for where you log in for the different accounts.
There are five main sections to the Website Administration Details sheet.
Firstly there’s a section for your domain and hosting details. You may have both registered with the same company in which case you can just fill in of these.
Social media accounts are up next. I’ve added the main options and given you one blank area. You may use only one or two of these accounts or all of them. There is also a handy checkbox you can mark once you’ve linked your accounts with WordPress Publicize (in Sharing settings).
On the next page are the WordPress and email accounts details. I’ve added a number of email accounts because depending on the type of site you may have more than one. For example, you have enquiry, personal, and accounts email accounts.
Lastly, there is a section for notes. This comes in handy for jotting down things you need to remember that may not be provided for in this sheet.
I would love to know if you use it.
