Yes, to change the URL you will need to purchase another one and then move the website to that URL.

To do this in WordPress:

  1. Log into your your WordPress Dashboard as an administrator.
  2. Next, click on Settings from the menu, and then General.
  3. The two fields we'll change are WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL).
  4. Enter the URL you'd like to use.
  5. Scroll down the page and click on the Save Changes button.
  6. Be sure that you rename the folder to the new URL in FTP or the File Manager.
