Difference between website URL and admin login URL

The website URL and the admin login URL are not the same thing.  Here is some clarification on the two:

  • The website URL is what the public type into their browser to visit the website. For example: https://mysite.com
  • The admin login URL is what the website owner types in to get to the login screen.  Once logged in, the admin can make changes to the website (like changing text, adding photos, etc…). Typically (not always) the admin url is something like: https://mysite.com/wp-admin
