/wp-admin/ is where the login lives.

if you type just your IP address then it will take you to the wordpress homepage, Ie: your website that you are creating.

To then login and create pages etc, you visit IP/wp-admin/ or Yourdomain.com/wp-admin/

  • Typically what you do is,
    install wordpress on your IP address.

    Buy a website domain name.

    Set the websites www and non www A records to your IP address

    Visit your website address.com to view your website & visit address.com/wp-admin/ to login and make changes.

I have done as what you say.
