How to Buy a Domain Name

I’ve got a series of projects going on, one of which is to enhance my Internet presence. I’ve been thinking about buying a domain name and putting up my own Web site where I can post my resume, projects, clips, whatever, without worrying about losing it when I graduate or something silly like that. (My current Web space is hosted by the University of Florida)

So does anyone have any advice on how to go about this? I’ve looked at a couple of sites that sell domain names and also hosting plans, but I’m not sure what I really need or who is offering the best (or cheapest) services. All I’m looking to do is buy the domain name and a hosting plan, which sounded really easy until I did some research.
