Domain Names

I purchased a domain name, but my Wordpress site says "powered by wordpress" at the bottom.   I didn't think it was supposed to have that on your site if you had your own Domain.   This is my first website, so I really don't have much of an idea of what I'm doing.  Can someone help?  Thanks in advance 🙂

@Ronda It says powered by wordpress because your site is technically powered by wordpress. You're using their site infrastructure. At any rate, it is possible to remove the link by editing the footer file. Here are some instructions on how to do that, be careful what you modify though, editing something that shouldn't be edited can cause your site to produce an error and not load. http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-to-remove-the-powered-by-wordpress-footer-links/
