New to web hosting, what hosting services can I use?

I've recently created a small hobby site using wordpress and currently hosted on wordpress.com. It is a niche site and I will have a number of product recommendations that I feel would be valuable to monetize. I'd like to add affiliate links (specifically Amazon.com) or possibly use adsense but that's a no no on wordpress.com. Can anyone help me through the myriad of options for hosting by providing some recommendations?

My requirements are very basic (I think):
-Domain name registration (I will need to buy/purchase a new domain name).
-Hosting - In the short term I am not expecting high traffic. If the volume of page views was in the hundreds per day I would be surprised in the near future.
-Allows ads/affiliate links
-Simlicity - Although I have a solid technical background in computer science and networking I have not done any web design since HTML was still the main player in town. Easily porting the wordpress site is a must.
Thanks to everyone in advance!
