I have a domain purchased. I have a website without a domain that I can view with the IP address. I need to point the website to the domain. It is hosted with BlueHost but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do it?

For what it is worth I have installed WordPress successfully and have access to the Admin Panel with the ip address + /wp-admin suffix.

For clarity, this does not require "transferring a domain".

Go to where DNS is hosted (the nameservers tell you that) and in DNS you need to add (or edit) an A Record that points to the IP address of the bluehost server.
