Go to godaddy.com and get a go daddy domain, then in the, godaddy log in page, register and activate your domain name, (beware of the other services they are offering, they are not necessary just yet and you can always go back later if you need them) Go to Hostgator.com and get yourself one of their hosting plans, the hatchling plan is fine if its your first time, you can always upgrade later if you need to, then just follow their instructions.
Hostgator will then send you an email with a link to your new Hostgator control panel and password etc, so click on the link, enter your password and your page should then look like this.
Next scroll down to the domains section and click on Advanced DNS Zone Editor.
Once opened you will find your ip address in the, Zone file records box near the top.
Launch the DNS manager in your godaddy account and copy the ip address under “points to” in the host box.
You should now be able to go back to your Hostgator control panel click on fantastico and then load wordpress!
