Getting Started with the Webex Meetings Suite

To get started with the Webex Meetings suite, you need

  • A host account on your Webex site.

  • The Webex URL for your Webex site.

  • Your Webex username and password.

The welcome email that you receive from your site administrator contains your Webex URL. Visit the URL to sign in to your Webex site. From there, you can easily meet online, over the phone or your computer, with anyone anywhere in the world.


The welcome email that you receive may also include a link for you to create a password for your account. To create a password for your account, select Create Password.

If your Webex site uses Single-Sign-On (SSO), use those credentials to sign in.
