Yes, you can. You can take hosting from Blueshost. It is the best hosting provider with minimum down time.

It depends on your website purpose. If you having commercial sites then go with Good Wordpress hosting.  In case if you have person blogging sites, then go with wordpress.org.

Hi,

on Siteground https://www.siteground.com/web-hosting.htm 
they have a good offer and good service

That's worth the price if you plan to be serious with your blog.

Also the wordpress.com hosting is less flexible theming and plugins...

If you are looking for long term site then I'd suggest to purchase hosting instead of going for free hosting.

Moreover it is hard to get Adsense account approved for sites hosted on free environment.

Hi,

If you use wordpress.com is a lot more limited (features and CSS).
But you will save a lot of time because everything is set for you.
