    Under 500? :lol: Contact me for a .com under 400. I can provide you the required control with your own username and password! You will not be prevented from transferring it as well because you will have full control over it.

    Additionally, even I am in Mumbai ;)

    BTW, do you mean you want a domain AND hosting under 700? That seems a little difficult! You can't rely too much on cheap hosting. IMO, instead of very cheap hosting, might as well go for free hosting. You can search this forum and you will find many threads on free hosting! Or for better results, spend a little more and get reliable hosting.

    Contact me for more details. :)

    i dont know domain , hosting what it means. i know website www. in simple meaning.

    example how www.thinkdigit.com is
    i want that type of website. i dont want forums.
    and want only 10 mb data maximum data on the site and 5 - 10 maximum pages on it .
    10 mb maximum means i can upload 1 or 2 mb only but not above 10 mb and have 1 -2 mb data to download if required by people.

    And want 500 monthy bandwidht

    i dont know what u called this website , domain, hosting

    like i want www.xyzxyz.com and want to make the main page and other 5 - 10 pages maximum according to me not according to rules of the site that u have to place this link or this link , i mean ads , like how yahoo , they displayed their ads to give us free email. i dont want that kind that i have to display ads that are coming from free sites.

    For free web-space, I would suggest Zeeblo.

    For paid web-space, have a look at any of above offers.

    Many web hosts provide sub-domains / long urls to your account. You can then use that url or make it shorter using url redirection service like www.snipurl.com which gives urls like snipurl.com/yoursnip

    Else you can take DOT.tk top level domain for free, but that is too slow and not reliable.

    Best is to pay for your domain, any .com will be under Rs 400/year.

    Here's a intro on web-sites for newbies. ;) Please don't nitpick and point out technical errors. This is stated in simple terms for better understanding from a newbie's viewpoint.

    For a web-site, you need 3 things.
    1. Domain (a .com, .net, .org, .in, etc.)
    2. Hosting (server space)
    3. Content and design.

    All the three things are separate with separate costs. You can take all 3 from same person or all 3 from 3 different person. The last one can be managed on your own as well.

    Let me start with a server. A server is a high capacity computer which remains on and online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Files on a server can be accessed without a domain name with an IP address as well.

    But how convenient is a website if you have to type http://212.100.33.56 to access it? Or if you have to send an email to info@212.100.33.56. So a domain name is used for convenience and clarity. When someone enters www.yourdomain.com in his browser, that domain name is resolved to an IP address, you are forwarded there and files kept there are displayed.

    This is how all the sites are made. You don't need any specific example for this.

    Domain names are usually not available for free (except that silly .tk). But there are many sites that provides free hosting! Even in this forum many people have posted about the list of sites giving free hosting. So search the forum and take help of google/yahoo ;) for free hosting.

    However, IMO, if you are serious about your site, it better to pay a bit and take hosting. There's someone who is accountable for the downtime or its maintenance. In free, there is no commitment. They can shut it down or stop it anytime they want. They can kick you out even if you violate some of their terms unknowingly. So there's no guarantee of continuation, speed, etc.

    I always wonder how do free hosting providers survive if they don't even display their ads on your sites!!

    However, if you are not too sure, start with something thats free. You can switch hosting anytime you want. It takes about 48 hours to take effect.

    You can to buy 2 things to get your website -
    1. A domain name (.com/ .net/ .info, etc.)
    2. Webspace for your website.

    You can get both of the things from different providers. You can select providers providing the best deal for each thing.

    As said above ^^. In case you need serious website better for paid. Or, just for startup you can surely try freehosts. But, one day you will have to go for paid. I have experiences with free hosts with more than 2 years. In case you find your host (providing specs you need) it doesn't last long.

    Except for these, zeeblo is the best,I dont know whether they are committed or not, but they provide a control panel and I found it quite easy to manage.

    Well dont think I am hijacking this thread, I too have a doubt related to this, if I have a domain name how can I point it to my site which is created in free hosting sites???......

    Most domain registration services will provide you with this service. Alternatively, follow these steps

    1. Change the domain's DNS;
    2. Host your domain with a free .com hosting provider (e.g. www.freeservers.com);
    3. Make an index.htm (or index.html or default.htm or whatever) page with the following code; and
    4. Upload it to the free .com hosting provider.

    Code:
    <html><head></head>
    <body onload="window.location='http://www.yourname.freesiteprovider.com';">
    If you are not automatically forwarded to the main site, please [url="http://www.yourname.freesiteprovider.com"]click here[/url].
    </body>
    </html>
    
    You may have a look at the terms to see that you are not violating their terms because some free providers don't permit this! :)
