WP says username doesnt exist. I made no changes

  1. Hi there...I need help logging into a new account I made yesterday. I wrote down my log in username and password, and email associated with the account. I did not change these since creating them yesterday.
    For some reason when I attempt to log in, or RETRIEVE my password (even though I know what it is) it says it does not have the username or email on file.
    What do I do now? I can visit the site by going to it, when I go to it doesn't show up though. I host through godaddy.
    Can someone help me? I would like to go in to my account and keep updating it!

    You are asking about two different accounts - you account here at WordPress.COM ( is not related to your account at Godaddy ( - the log in and passwords are not related

    See the supportbot for more info on the difference

  4. Hi Auxclass, thanks for your reply. OK this is so confusing! I went through my browser history for yesterday when I created this site. I clicked on this link: and it allowed me to log in with my username "Pureedlove" and my password. So if I understand correctly, I have to use THIS link above to login, and cannot use ? Also, I tried to log in to the forum for support just now here: and it said:

    "The username or email Pureedlove does not exist here on Register it?
    This is where you can log in for the support forums on If you are trying to log into your own site that runs WordPress, you need to do that on your own site, not here."

    So help me do I log in to my site going forward to make changes to it?

    Also- do I need to create a new/separate username/pword for the forum?

    Many many thanks!!!!
