    Depends on what kind of website you want. Do you want a website that handles alot of traffic or a very reliable one. I didn't need too much traffic so I used polurnet as my host. My host helped me get a domain name for like $10 a year. They will walk you through getting a domain name and using FTP to upload your website's file folders.

    Also: Free hosting and domain names: http://domainlagoon.com/?ref=33039

    You've probably seen gaminglagoon links floating around, well, this is the same, but for domains.

    my own website shtbc.net runs on the hosting, as well as the domain was purchased through there.

    Also, .info domains are only 2 dollars/2 points there.
