X-Cart software allows hosting a store on the X-Cart servers or using other servers. How you get your store URL, login, and password depends on how your X-Cart store is hosted. Users who host their store themselves create a store URL and their login/password when installing the software. Users who host their store on the X-Cart servers receive the store URL and login/password from the X-Cart Hosting staff at the email address specified during the purchase.

To log in to your store Admin area:

  1. In the address bar of your browser, enter your store's Admin area URL. It represents the main URL of your store, followed by the path to your store’s Admin area. For example:


    You will be redirected to the admin login page:


    X-Cart 5.5.x:

    X-Cart 5.4.x:

  2. Enter the email and password you received via email or specified during X-Cart installation.

  3. Click the "Log in" button.

In most cases, you will also be able login as an administrator from the storefront. Enter the storefront URL, for example:


Then use the Sign in/sign up button to access the login page.

After entering your admin login and password on the login page, you will go straight to the Admin area.

Note that you will not be able to login as an administrator via the storefront if the storefront is locked or your store is temporarily closed for maintenance. To login to the Admin area in those cases, use the Admin area URL (similar to "https://<your-store-name>.myxcartstore.com/admin/") or the direct Admin login link (similar to "https://<your-store-name>.myxcartstore.com/admin.php?target=login") instead.
