  • That is a very long instructional and I’m not too sure which part of it would apply to my situation. I think that instructional is base on moving to a domain with hosting behind it. My newly registered domain has no hosting behind it, it’s just a domain by itself. So can you please suggest which part of that instructional I would need to use or list me the steps here. Thank you.

    If you want to use wordpress the way that you instructed in your first post, you will have to have hosting with unless you are just redirecting.
