Newbie - Website/Wordpress/Database and linked Apps?

Hi, I’ve designed a website and app, which I am getting freelance developers to build for me.

  1. I need to setup a Website, a Database and a Wordpress Back-end, and also have folks using a Mobile App I’ve designed be able to access data form my database on the website.

  2. I also may want to replicate this regionally (have separate databases for people in different regions).

I’m paying for this - but I’m not a Developer, so excuse the newbie question. I see the site is intended for Developers, but I’m not one.

Can I do all this on this service?
