Clearly CodersCombat is an intriguing name to an online collaboration
platform for devs.

First of all I would suggest you do take a look at the name and see if it
makes sense. At least in my perception - it is a platform where developers
are likely to compete not collaborate. And you really really don't want to
have a name which means something different than what the product offers.

For paid plans - it is certainly cheaper than github and bitbucket paid
plans. But there are many others. Take a look at
http://www.assembla.com/plans. You don't have to respond to it online - but
make a case at least to yourself why someone would pay you 600 Rs./Month
instead of free private repositories on Assembla. And really as far as
getting end users is concerned, the big hurdle is between Rs. 0.00 and Rs.
0.01. Once you are beyond that 600 vs. 6000 imo doesn't matter so much.

Its good you are attempting to do something constructive and personally
meaningful and enriching. Rather than be critical of the initiative I would
support your enthusiasm. But really do make a good market study and create
something that creates a compelling reason for people to use your products.
I am not sure thats visible yet.
