Many a time, I have come across tech start-ups, new businesses and freelancers looking for reliable and reputed website services provider for registering their domain and set up a web hosting account. While Yahoo and Godaddy are undoubtedly the best in the business, they are also the costliest. Yahoo charges 4000 INR/year onwards for basic domain and web hosting package (with 10 email ids) !!! Added to this there is always the actual website design cost that is normally charged at 500 INR per page. Of course there are cheaper alternatives like going for a local web hosting provider (almost every web design company provides domain registration and hosting services). However, we see a lot of businesses coming to us often not knowing how to recover their domain and website files since their local hosting provider has gone out of business recently!
Now, GoDaddy is offering a whopping 85% OFF on their starter package for small businesses.
Features of this web services package
1. A domain name for 1 year
2. 1 year web hosting (wordpress enabled for designing your own site in minutes)

5. 24/7 phone support
6. Choice of operating system (windows/linux)
