The ICDSoft hosting site is quite popular, cheap, and good support.  https://www.icdsoft.com/

Ken's Saratoga scripts are a good place to start, depending on what software you use.  CumulusMX and WeatherDisplay are the most popular.  For beginners, I'd say CumulusMX is the best way to go.  But you'll need a PC to run the software.  Or a PI.

I messed around with Wordpress for awhile.  Wasn't impressed.  Been with ICDSoft for ten years or more, virtually no downtime.

Your own hosting is a bit of a learning curve, but not too bad.

I went with ICD after recommendations here. Never had an issue. Use saratoga templates .
