Wordpress hosting of my own domain name

  1. I am new to the whole domain hosting thing. I just bought a domain name, but now I need to create the website. I would like to create it using wordpress and I was under the impression that I could do it for free since wordpress offers the free blog option. When I tried to create it, it said I must pay $12 per year. Is it possible to make a blog on wordpress using my own domain name for free?

  2. Is it possible to make a blog on wordpress using my own domain name for free?
