    Following are the steps to do this:

    Step-1: First of all, download "wp-config.php" file in your local system through FTP account.
    (You can locate this file under the folder where you have installed WordPress)

    Step-2: Once it is downloaded, open it in any text editor and add the following line:
    define('WP_HOME','your-temporary-url');
    define('WP_SITEURL','your-temporary-url');

    Here, your-temporary-url is the URL that you have received in the hosting account login information email. You can access this email by referring the steps mentioned here. In case, if you could not find then you can contact our support team for this.

    Step-4:
    After specifying these two lines save the changes and upload "wp-config.php" file back on the server using FTP account.

    Step-5:
    You can now access your website using the URL mentioned in the file.
