Help with URL

This may seem a bit silly but I'm completely new to the whole webpage designing thing..

I have my main URL (http://sustaininghealthacupuncture.com) set as the index page, and my site itself is at http://sustaininghealthacupuncture.com/wp .

Is there any way that I can change things so that my main URL directs to my site rather than having to go to the /wp page to see it?

Thank You!!

Yes, WordPress supports being installed in a subdirectory but looking like being in the main directory. I do that regularly on my WordPress sites. (redirects are not required.)

Full instructions are in the WordPress codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory. See the section "Using a pre-existing subdirectory install" for your situation where WordPress is already installed in its own directory.

The OP asked if they could re-direct it though, they don't want it in the root directory.

It really depends on what the OP wants to accomplish. With a 301 redirect, the user doesn't have to type the subdirectory for the initial entry point, but all URLs do include the subdirectory. With the technique described in the WordPress codex, WordPress remains installed in its subdirectory but the subdirectory is invisible to the user and never shows up in any URLs. Two files have to be copied from the WordPress subdirectory to the root directory, and a config file edited lightly, to implement the codex approach.

The OP said he was "new to the whole webpage designing thing," so my guess is that he wants the cleanest looking solution. I think that's the codex approach as it completely hides the subdirectory from users. It's the OP's call as to which approach works better for his website.
