See this:

You have an option for $5 which gives you a droplet with 1GB transfer, 25 GB storage, 1 GB RAM and 1 vCPU. It's more than enough for my WordPress blog. You can also choose the operating system (I typically use Debian since it's great for the servers and isn't cluttered like Ubuntu). Now, how it exactly done would take longer to write. I basically SSH into my droplet, set up PHP, Nginx, MySQL, do some administrative tasks to better protect the system and then install WordPress. I've been doing these things for years now but DigitalOcean has great guides which explain how you can set up your application on it.
