You won’t get full control of your hosting. So it’s better to buy hosting from others. There are so many domain and hosting providers. BlueHost, Hostgator, SiteGround, A2 Hosting, iPage, GoDaddy, Namecheap are popular of them. There are some managed WordPress hosting companies. Top of them are SiteGround (for speed, built for security), WP Engine, Pressidium, DreamHost.

My Recommendations:
