    Instead of Hosting Wordpress on other sites , can't we purchase the Wordpress Premium or Bussiness plan directly from Wordpress.com and install Adsense,Chitika etc....

    Wordpress Premium or Business?
    Lol this is the first I am hearing of this, you seem very confused. Most hosting providers have quick install Wordpress scripts, but I'd recommend doing a manual install to avoid getting raped by malicious users.

    wordpress on personal hosting will cost less as compared to wordpress on wordpress.com
    and moreover there would be no limitations you can install and edit any theme plugins etc

    He is not confused :)

    Check these out:

    Code:
    http://store.wordpress.com/
    Code:
    http://store.wordpress.com/bundles/
    Yes, more customization (Think plugins). I don't think you can install them on wp.com

    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/browse/popular/
    These are the free ones; there are premium plugins as well, like BackupBuddy or Gravity Forms.

    Hope this helps :)

    Find good webhosting first with good reviews, play with the backend of wordpress.

    self hosted is my choice, because I can control everything.

    There are both free and premium (paid) WP themes.

    As for how to install, you can either do it within WordPress or via FTP.

    There are plenty of guides on YouTube:

    I hope this helps you :)
