1: Domain Cost (69rs – 800rs)

If you create a self-hosted WordPress blog or website, you will need to buy a domain name. Although the domain cost is 700 but if you buy it with coupon, you will get very cheap (90rs). You can use BigRock and Godaddy for domain register.

2: Web Hosting Cost (3000rs – 7000rs)

A good web hosting is very important for any online business. If you do not choose the best web hosting, it can lead to failure of your website or blog as your site will mostly be in downtime and will load very slowly. This badly affects the user experience and website ranking.

3: WordPress Theme Cost (0rs – 5,000rs)

Choose a theme for your site that is clean, simple and good looking. Apart from this, your theme should also be responsive and fast loading.
You can also use WordPress.org's free themes on your site which are absolutely safe. However, free WordPress themes come with limited support and features. Whereas premium themes provide unlimited support and features. For premium WordPress themes, you can use Mythemshop, Themeforest, StudioPress. You can get a good premium theme under 5000rs which comes with great features and support.

4: WordPress plugins (0rs – 5,000rs)

Plugins work as extensions to your site. There are 55,000+ free plugins available in WordPress. If you want to add a feature to your site, you can use a plugin. If there is any problem in your site then you can easily fix it using plugin.Apart from this, you can use Yoast SEO plugin to improve the SEO of your WordPress site. It is available in both paid and free version. Its premium plan comes with 6 different prices.

WordPress is an open source software and completely free. But you'll need a domain name ($7.99/year) and hosting (usually starting at $2.75 per month).

I would advise you to start with a small amount. When your blog starts becoming popular, then you can add more features to it. In this way you can start your blog with low cost in the beginning.

WordPress is absolutely free, but to create a site on WordPress, you need a web hosting and a domain name. You will have to spend money on this

I recommend you to start with Shared Hosting. After this you can use a free WordPress theme with the necessary free WordPress plugins on your site. It will cost you around $100/year here.

When your website starts gaining popularity, you can add more features, tools and services to it later. This will cost you some extra money.
