Login to the backend of your site…

Your WordPress site has two parts. The public frontend is what your visitors see when they come and visit your site. It also has the private backend or what we call the WordPress admin panel, and this is where you manage your site and make changes to your site.

Visiting the backend of your site requires logging in. Open the browser of your choice such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer. In the address bar, type in your domain name followed by /wp-admin . I have typed in ctewebsite.com/wp-admin which is the domain name that I’m using. Now press enter or return on your keyboard.

This takes us to the login page. Enter your username and password that was emailed to you. This takes you to the backend of your website, and you can see a dashboard here and I’ll be explaining that in the next tutorial.

In the top right corner you can click and log out if you choose to do so. Logging out takes you back to the login page.
