Your Hosted Dashboard
You can sign-in to Envato Hosted using your Envato login credentials. If you don't have an Envato Account, you will be prompted to create one when you sign up to Envato Hosted. You can also create one here. Please note, these credentials cannot be changed in the future and will link your Envato Hosted account to the Envato Market account login you use, which is where you will access your theme downloads.
Your Envato login credentials may also be used to sign in to this help center to request support at top-right.
Your Envato Hosted Dashboard is where you manage all aspects of your domain such as domains, email routing, SSL and your subscription and is separate from your WordPress Dashboard where you manage your site content.
When you sign up you will also need to choose a WordPress Site Admin Username and Password - these credentials will be used to manage your WordPress site.
You may login to WordPress by clicking the WPADMIN button in the Plans section of your Dashboard until your domain is fully activated.
To reset or request a new password, click Lost your Password? and enter the email address used to create your WordPress login. See How Do I Login To WordPress or Reset My Password?
Setup Your Domain
You will be greeted by the Envato onboarding wizard to gather some basic information about your site, including your domain details. You can use a domain name you already own, or register a new domain via the Envato Hosted signup page. If you don't have a domain yet, we will generate a temporary URL for you to use until a domain is added. This only adds the domain to WordPress.
Domains hosted elsewhere will not point to your new Envato Hosted website until you change the DNS servers to ours, so it is safe to add them to WordPress as soon as you can. You can access your site from the temporary URL until you're ready to switch over.
The temporary url is your domain followed by .routing.envatohostedview.com. Example: http://yourdomain.com.routing.envatohostedview.com
Please allow up to 48 hours for your domain to fully resolve to your new site once DNS changes are made.
Once your domain is active, you may access your WordPress login page by browsing to your url followed by /wp-admin/.
Example: http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/ or http://yourdomain.com.routing.envatohostedview.com/wp-admin/

Email & SSL Certificates
Envato Hosted is not an email host. If you plan to use an email address on your site that uses an inbox @ your domain, you will need to setup Email routing (you do not need to do this for public services like gmail, yahoo, outlook, icloud, etc.)
Adding SSL to your site improves its Google rankings and is required for sites running eCommerce. Right before you are ready to launch your site, switch your site to https easily following these steps:
Payment & Subscriptions
Payment details are entered at time of signup and housed on your Envato Build Dashboard.
Once you have completed the signup process, you’ll receive a welcome email that includes lots of helpful info and links about Envato Hosted.
