    1. Contact your hosting provider to add the domain to your account.

    2. Change the two URLs at Settings/General in your admin panel to http://daily-video-dose.com (WordPress will stop functioning until step 3 is completed).

    3. Move all of the WordPress files to the new directory that your hosting provider created for daily-video-dose.com .

    (As this is a new domain, you may need to wait a few hours before you can access it after it has been setup by your hosting provider.)

    4. Login to your admin panel and re-save your permalink structure at Settings/Permalinks. If WordPress cannot automatically edit the .htaccess file, it will provide manual instructions after saving.

    That's all you need to do. For more detailed information, see this guide:
