There are different ways to create and host a WordPress website.
Select a WordPress Hosting Plan
To start creating a WordPress, you need to choose a hosting provider company.
You can start with WordPress.com with the listed plans below.
You can start with a free plan and later you can upgrade to another plan. In the free plan, you have some restrictions such as you can install plugins, but can not use the custom domain. If you upgrade to a paid plan you can do everything based on your plan. More info checks WordPress Plans(https://wordpress.com/pricing/).
Selecting a domain name, hosting provider, and setting up WordPress
You can choose a domain name to host providing companies such as Bluehost, Namecheap, GoDaddy etc. After selecting your domain name hosting provider will ask you some questions about billing etc and once you have done they will give you where you have domain and hosting details.
