    • Purchase a domain first
    • Apply to a hosting company
    • WordPress installation
    • Install astra themes

    I think it will be in the above order.

    You can of course also purchase the project domain later. This does not have to be the first step. Bear in mind, however, that you will then have to change the domain settings in the project again, see:

    What you need first, however, is storage space that fulfils the minimum requirements of WordPress. This doesn’t have to be hosting – it can also be your local computer. Find out more about local development of WordPress websites, there are several solutions for this. It doesn’t have to be paid hosting. You only need this to go live – in this case, see the link above.
