Get a web hosting account. There are many web hosts out there. You sign up, they give you login details, you upload your files ... and bang, you're online.

Most web hosts use Linux/Apache anyway. Just check with the host before you sign up. They will tell you on their website what they use.

Many host would provide you with a free domain name on their Annual Packages. However I would not recommend going with a free webhost even for your development purposes.

Red Hat or Centos (A Red Hat look alike ) or Debian are dependable distributions to host Linux and Apache. I prefer Debian (if giving a choice) as I like their package management better than Centos; however this is a personal preference so if you don't have experience with either then it is a bit like rolling the dice.
You want to make sure you know the end of life for any distribution you choose. You also want to ensure that that a current version of Apache and possible PHP and/or MySQL are part of the distribution. Also you want to ensure that there is a supported management package like WebMin (although that is commonly installed outside of the package management)

Go to get a cpanel web hosting account. It is the easily step to begin a website. It has built-in templates and a lot of applications.
