Domain name Local Site Help!

Ive installed WordPress onto my computer locally using the Local app. I’ve bought a domain name. I’ve changed my local domain to my purchased domain in the settings > general > site address of WordPress. It works great on my computer, but no one else. I think it may have not been actually uploaded to the web, but I have no idea how to move a WordPress local site to a domain name. I am currently hosting it on Easy WP bc its free lol but any suggestions welcome!!!

  1. Don’t host on your home PC. Get some proper hosting.

    Google “how to migrate WP” – tons of info/youtube/plugins on how to do that.

  2. Do you mean that you have bought the affiliated hosting from local?

    You’ll need to move this to the web. On your local copy, install the Duplicator plugin by snap creek. And then you’ll get an installer and package file to upload to your new server.

    I’ll DM you video instructions!

    Hope this helps!
