I think 123reg are pretty cheap for registering domain names, so you can buy through them and then point it to wix's servers (you do that on 123reg's site)

Not silly questions at all!

I can't answer your website question but can help with your company ones (I am a chartered accountant).

If you are intending as operating as a sole trader you will not have a limited company so no need to to register with anyone other than with HMRC who you need to notify that you are self-employed.

Here are a couple of useful sites for you to have a look at.

Hope this helps.

Okay having decided on the name for my business, I want to register as a a sole trader and purchase a domain name.

I am working on a website on Wix. I have chosen my domain name and I know it's available. Do I need to purchase it through Wix or is it okay to purchase through another provider (seems to be a bit cheaper).

Re registering my company name, is this purely a case of registering for self assessment or do I need to actually register the name in a separate process?

Sorry for the silly questions!
