Hey @fatma – Welcome to the Local Community Forums!

Local has a feature called “Router Mode” which allows you to choose between using localhost or a human readable site-domain (something like example.local) to access the WordPress site. You can change this setting by navigating to the “Preferences > Advanced > Router Mode” page.
