Selecting a plan is based on how many websites you need and if you want any subdomains like forums.mydomain.com
For a single website you should be okay with the Economy!

Choose a domain
Change duration to 12months (can’t be less if you want free domain)
Create an account
Enter your details
Enter your billing address and credit card then purchase

Enter the domain you chose
Choose the server location
Only continue if you want them to install WordPress for you!!
If you want automatic installation of wordpress
