The Mysteries Behind Accessing Your WordPress Site from Another Computer
While WordPress is a powerful platform, accessing a WordPress site from another computer can be a perplexing and confusing endeavor. Nevertheless, fear not! In this article, we will burst with excitement as we discuss, in detail, the various methods by which you can access your WordPress site from another computer.
Method 1: Use Your Website’s URL
The simplest way to access your WordPress site from another computer is by using your website’s URL. Just enter your website’s URL in your web browser’s address bar, and you’ll be good to go. But wait! Before doing so, keep in mind that your website must be “live and running” to access it. In addition, ensure that your website is publicly accessible to avoid restrictions to specific IP addresses or passwords.
Method 2: Use FTP
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is an essential tool for WordPress users to transfer files to and from a remote server. If you need to access your WordPress site from another computer, FTP can come in handy. You only need a valid FTP username and password (usually provided by your web hosting company), FTP client software (such as FileZilla, Cyberduck, or WinSCP), and your website’s IP address. Following the step-by-step guide provided will allow you to modify or upload files to your WordPress site using your FTP client.
Method 3: Using Remote Desktop Connection
If you have access to a Windows-based computer, Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) is a Microsoft application that enables you to access another computer over a network or the internet. Accessing your WordPress site from another computer using RDC requires enabling remote desktop on your Windows computer, finding your computer’s IP address, and using the Remote Desktop Connection application to log in successfully.
Method 4: Using a VPN
A virtual private network (VPN) is a secure connection between your computer and a remote server to protect your online privacy and access geographically restricted content. Using a VPN allows you to connect to your WordPress site from another computer, even with network restrictions or geo-blocks. Simply select a reliable VPN service provider, sign up for a subscription, download and install the VPN client software on your computer, and connect to a VPN server in a location that allows you to access your WordPress site. Open your web browser, and voila! You’re in.
