Adding the localwp.com files into the public_html folder

Is it necessary for the wordpress files to be placed exactly under the public_html folder as shown in the video? The reason why I ask this, is because I already have my own personal website up and running. I thought that I could use that domain name instead of buying a new one. So I want to use my existing website and place these files there just for learning purposes. I placed the wordpress files under a folder called localwp.
