    Yes - you will need to buy hosting to run your self-hosted WordPress site. Once you have hosting, your hoists will be able to assist you in setting up your MySQL database, user and password.

    Hi Bychowiec;
    First make a localhost (local server on your computer with software like LAMP, XAMP, WAMP or MAMP).

    Then download WordPress installation file & install it on your computer with the help of tutorials from WWW. By the way, you can understand basics of hosting, database & WordPress like scripts.
