Hosted Elementor Website: Elementor Dashboard > Left Panel > Websites

Websites is a grid of all of your Elementor websites, including the websites in which Elementor Pro has been activated/ connected and those in which the Elementor Library has been connected. 

Any sites activated or connected with a Pro license will have the Pro label on the website card. Any site without the Pro label will be one in which it was connected to via the Elementor Library.

Note: If a site is connected to your account via library connect, it will NOT appear as Pro, regardless of whether it has Pro or not. (i.e. If the user connected via Library connect to a site that is connected to Pro via someone else’s subscription, it will NOT appear as Pro).

Websites Dashboard

The top right of the Websites Dashboard consists of a Search bar and  the ability to display websites as either cards or as a lis.


Click the Search icon to quickly find one of your websites by searching for either its url or title.

Display As Cards or List

Click the Display icon to switch between viewing your websites in either Cards view or List view.


For security reasons, your website’s WordPress based Admin system has its own credentials, in addition to your Elementor credentials. 

Your site’s WordPress username is automatically created while you create your site and is a derivative of your email.  The email associated with your site, with which you can login to your site, receive email notifications and retrieve password is, of course, the email address associated with your Elementor account.  The password is set by you, and should be kept somewhere safe. 

When you create your website Elementor will automatically assign you a temporary domain on; We also give your website a temporary name (“My Website”).  You can and should change your site’s name at any time through the WordPress admin.
