Move a Wordpress website over to a different domain

I had a domain which expired so I planned moving it over to another domain which I have registered and is also with an account. Is there a way I can move it over? I have the /htdocs locally.

I’m sorry, I will expand a bit more. I already had an account on infinity free for my website on Now the domain expired and it looks like I can’t get it back.
