You need a domain name and web hosting to start a WordPress website along with plugins for specific functionalities and a theme for appearance framework. It is better to go for a managed WordPress hosting.
1. Domain Name
2. Web Hosting
Hosting cost: Varies from your choice of hosting provider. There are so many good ones. For best results, consider:
a) Liquid Web (19$ per month; two months free with annual plan).
b) Flywheel (starting with 15$ per month/150$ yearly).
Still cheaper, GoDaddy (starting with149 Rs. per month, without SSL certificate) and NameCheap (3.88$ per month or 22.88$ billed yearly).
3. Plugins & Themes
While most of the WordPress plugins have a free version, pro version might be needed for extra functionality. So is the case with themes (the way how the website appears in terms of fonts, sidebars..).
In other words, you can start buying a domain name and hosting as per your choice. There are free plugins and themes to proceed with the next steps. Hosting can always be scaled up/migrated.
