You'll need to first add your domain name to your WA hosting. Did you purchse your domain through WA? If so, your domain is already set up for WA hosting.

If not, your first step is to point your domain's DNS settings to WA's server addresses. The process varies a bit from registrar to registrar. Enter the term DNS and the registrar name into the WA search box to find the training that's specific to your registrar.

Once you've made the required changes, you'll need to wait a bit (as little as an hour or less to as long as a full day) for WA's servers to recognize that the domain is pointed to their addresses. (Again, no need to wait if you purchased it though WA.)

Click on the siterubix "Site Builder" tab. Click on the "On a Domain I Own" button. Fill in the domain name you own. (You won't be able to proceed if WA's servers don't see the DNS settings pointed at them.) Give your site a name, pick a theme, and click on the "I'm Ready, Build My Website Now!" button.

Yes, once you've gotten your site hosted at WA, you can then upload a new theme from your PC to replace the theme that was installed when the site was built.

You'd do that by using the "Add New" button on the "Themes" page (under "Appearance"). On the "Add New" page, there is a button labeled "Upload Theme". Clicking that button opens a "Browse" button to allow you to select a theme zip file to upload. When you've selected your theme, the "Install Now" button will be enabled.
