Task 1 – Browse to the backend of your site now and log in (1 minute)

http://YOURSITE.My Artisan Web.com/administrator

Your backend login screen looks like this:
You must log in with the username and password you received in the "Welcome to My Artisan Web" email. They are same as the un/pw you use to log into the frontend.
