The term “site administration” usually means the day to day tasks of adding content and managing users. With a properly configured site the administration burden is relatively low. Most of the effort can be dedicated to generating that all important content.
After you create your My Artisan Web site, you actually have two sites:
- The public one (commonly called the frontend) that people view at yoursite.My Artisan Website.com.
- The private one for administration (commonly called the backend), its URL is yoursite.My Artisan Website.com /administrator.
While some administration is possible via the frontend of the site, it’s most efficient to manage your site through the backend. When you browse to the backend, you are greeted by a login prompt (see Figure 1).

To get any further, you’ll need an administrative password. The password came in the email you were sent when you first created your My Artisan Web site.
