    Hi Bullet,

    I assume you are new to WordPress.

    Check out https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wordpress/ as a start

    You can start with this: https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-manual-2/arranging-your-web-hosting/

    This will get your web host up. May I recommend SiteGround for Web hosting? Or if you are willing to spend more, you can check out FlyWheel at http://getflywheel.com for awesome WP managed hosting.

    Some suggestions for you:

    1. Google EVERYTHING you can about websites and all the different types/options there are out there.

    2. Put together a plan of what you want to do. Do you want to eventually be able to have many websites or just one? Whats is your websites focus? Do you want to have a blog?

    3. Research wordpress and some of the other website platforms that are available to you and see if they fit the needs of your plan,

    4. Do VERY GOOD research on hosting providers. I have worked with several and some of them were completely a nitemare to deal with. Personally I like Host Gator & Just Host.

    Hope this helps!
