Why is verification required for logon to the background through a Web Hosting instance with WordPress

Last Updated: Nov 09, 2018

Symptom

After you install WordPress in a Web Hosting instance, you have resolved CNAME to the test domain of the Web Hosting instance. After you bind the formal domain name, you can use the formal domain name to access the website. However, logon verification is required when you log on to the background.

Cause

A test domain name is entered during the installation of WordPress, so WordPress calls the address suffixed with *.aliwebs.com and jumps to the test domain name. The test domain name of the Web Hosting instance is used for debugging the website. Therefore, verification is required when you log on to the background.

Resolution

The preceding problem can be solved if the program calls the formal domain name. You can reach this purpose in the following two ways:

  • If you have certain knowledge about code, you can modify the domain name calling code of the program.

  • You may also back up the existing database and website programs, and reinstall WordPress with the formal domain name.
