There are multiple options or providers where you can buy the domain and the hosting. I will give you below few examples.
The advantage here is you can buy your domain and hosting together where GoDaddy provides you managed WordPress along your hosting. The installation is very easy and you do not have to take the pain to integrate.This is simply a click and install process without any knowledge nedded.
You also can utilize your existing domain and can take the WordPress hosting from GoDaddy.
This is also similarly provides you the option to take the hosting service along with manage WordPress and also hosting only if you want to use your existing domain.
BlueHost has number of plans with different available features but you can start with the starter plan and later move to the higher plan according to your business demands.
DreamHost.com also provides managed WordPress hosting. They claim this to be the faster managed WordPress hosting provider. The options they provide are.
• Automatic WordPress installation and update
• Control panel management
• Hosted on Virtual private server.
This has the advantage of your WordPress site is is hosted on an isolated virtual private server so no more noisy neighbors disrupting your website like on shared hosting.
NameCheap also provides WordPress installing feature with their own installer and similarly you do not have to much knowledgeable about the installation procedure. This is just select and click feature.
If you have a domain available with you already, you can easily configure to use the hosting service and link to your domain. This also includes different plans nad choose the one which will best fit for you and I suggest chose the basic one when you plan to start and can move to the higher one later.

There might appear some form based on the hosting service and if appears it will ask to fill up a simple form.Like Blog name, admin user name, admin user password etc. Fill that accordingly and keep the user, password safe. It will the start installing and configuring your WordPress and will continue for few minutes. Once everything is complete, you will see the installation completion message on the screen and will get your unique WordPress login URL. Again store that URL as you will very often require that. Normally it looks like,
