    No, first you need to start by acquiring a domain name from your hosting provider and properly mapping it to your hosting account.

    These are things you do through your hosting provider, and they’re normal hosting provider tasks, not related to WordPress in the least If they refuse to assist with that, perhaps it’s time for a better hosting provider: https://wordpress.org/hosting/

    That absolutely must be done before proceeding.


    Next are two options depending on how your hosting provider handles attributing the domain to your account.

    1. If they can map it to the same directory as the site is in now, all you have to do is change the siteurl and home values in the database to reflect that https://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL#Changing_the_URL_directly_in_the_database (you’ll find phpMyAdmin in your hosting account). phpMyAdmin is standard feature offered by all reputable hosting providers. I recommend asking them where it is.

    2. If they can only map the domain to a new directory in your hosting account, move the site following this guide: https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_Directories_On_Your_Existing_Server


    When your site is running properly under the new domain, use the https://wordpress.org/plugins/velvet-blues-update-urls/ plugin to change the URLs throughout your content.
